The bloody aftermath of Partition is seen through the eyes of an eight-year-old Parsee girl in this second instalment of Deepa Mehta’s elemental trilogy that commenced with FIRE. In Lahore, pampered Lenny is looked after by her beautiful Hindu nanny and the pair’s daily outing to the park attracts a slew of suitors of many faiths. But the erupting ethnic violence soon puts an end to these idyllic days. Based on the novel Cracking India by Bapsi Sidhwa.
