Life could not have been simpler in the small Indian village of Lakhowal--until all hell broke loose with the partition of the Indo-Pak subcontinent. In this gripping true story, a mother is forced to flee the village of her ancestors with her baby or risk being counted among the hundreds of thousands of deaths throughout the country. Faced with betrayal, chaos, and vulnerability, she is left with no option but to make the ultimate sacrifice.
