Young teacher Annie Krüger has just gotten a call from India: her father has disappeared without a trace from his hotel in Jaipur. Worried, she leaves for India, where she quickly becomes acquainted with the beauty of the country, as well as with the enormous disparity between poor and rich, the caste system and the “outsider” status of young women. Annie soon finds herself drawn to two men, both from diametrically opposed backgrounds: Arun, the fabulously wealthy son of the last Maharajah, and quick-witted Karan from the slums of Jaipur.
