SYNOPSIS - Honour For A Ransom


April 13th, 1978…


Kartar Singh, an upper caste agriculturist, guns down his newly married daughter 

Simran and her lower caste husband, for the sake of ‘upholding family honour’. His 

ex-love, Sarah Jefferson (a British psychologist) visits him in jail to discover that 

Kartar has been a victim of ruthless manipulation at the hands of his politician father, 

Dilawar Singh, who is known to unconditionally despise the lower caste.


Vowing justice for Kartar, Sarah embarks on an intriguing mission, venturing to turn 

the tables against the unscrupulous Dilawar, who by now is a powerful minister in the 

Punjab cabinet. 


Curiously delving into his boyhood days, she is astonished to learn that young 

Dilawar was in fact an ‘affable-boy-next-door’ who too had a love life, having lost his 

heart to a beautiful girl in Lahore…


What then caused this drastic transformation in his attitude and personality? 


With the time fast running out, can Sarah succeed in nailing Dilawar as the chief 

culprit for the honour killings? Will she be able to reunite with Kartar – the only man 

she ever loved?


A heartrending love story - Honour for a Ransom unfolds through the Jallianwala 

Bagh massacre, horrifying hazards of partition, romantic strolls by the Thames, and 

the unbending complexities of the rigid caste system.
