Bilal's father loves India and dreams of a united land and people. Now that India will be broken apart, Bilal and his father face their own tragedy. Bilal's father is dying. He won't last much beyond the division of the country, and Bilal's decides that rather than break his father's heart with the news, he will lie.
With the help of his three friends, Bilal keeps up the lie and prevents everyone in their village from telling his father the truth. But the tensions are rising all over the country, and the four friends of different faiths may not be facing just the end of a united India, they may be facing the end of their friendship.
