Presented by Diwali in BC

The romantic tragedy of Tagore is based on the story of Shyama, a powerful royal court dancer. Shyama falls in love with a foreign merchant who is falsely imprisoned by the King’s guard. The story slowly unfolds as Shyama travels great lengths to save her love from unjust execution, at times at the expense of others’ life.
