When the evil practice of Sati was abolished in British India in the early 18th century, there was still a secret society accustomed to this devilry under the veil of nationalism. The Governor-General Lord William Henry Bentinck, along with his loyal spy Abdul has to go through a whole set of challenges to trace and stop it before things get worse.
