A Passage to India

About the Film

Adela Quested arrives in India to marry her fiance, a provincial magistrate. Chafing under the suburban constraints of British society and anxious to see “the real India,” she is delighted to be introduced to a young Indian doctor, Aziz. Although fascinated by Aziz, Adela fails to understand his motivation or her own feelings and their awkward relationship provokes the tragic enigma of the Marabar caves.
