Plot Summary
Summary Based on the classic story by Anglo-Indian novelist Rudyard Kipling, two British adventurers, former soldiers in Her Majesty's Service, give up the drudgery of eking out a living, legal and illegal, in poverty Raj-ruled India, and set out for the isolated, desolate land of Kafiristan to become heroes or, perhaps, even kings...
