He buries his personal wealth in a secret spot to be unearthed again when he returns from war... But as fate would have it, he is killed. His aged parents are unable to care for his new-born daughter, abandoning her at the door of a Catholic Convent. This epic traces the bloodline of Shankar Gowdas family through 4 generations and nearly a century as they battle ill-fortunes and terrible hardships within the social fiber of southern India during the British Raj. Seventy years later, Stanley Pinto, the grandson of the abandoned baby, employed by an English owned coffee plantation, attempts to drag his family out of the shackles of poverty and finds out how unexpectedly cruel and selfish the world can really be... Guts, determination and an odd twist of fate are Stanleys only allies.
