When Englishman Wilfred Cunningham heard Mohana sing the Rabindra Sangeet it captured his heart and started a chain of events that rippled through three generations. A legacy that included not just tea estates and blue eyes, but love and tolerance. A legacy that was challenged by India’s most orthodox communities as the Cunningham youngsters came of age and fell in love. Will love and right thinking conquer all? Can eight brides and grooms cast aside differences in language, cuisine and cultures to live in rare harmony? Can a legacy that started with one Englishman make a difference in this crazy world?
