The final Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, is tasked with overseeing the transition of British India to independence, but meets with conflict as different sides clash in the face of monumental change.

A British-Indian historical drama film directed by Gurinder Chadha and written by Paul Mayeda Berges, Moira Buffini, and Chadha, the film has been selected to be screened out of competition at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival. The film is about the inside life of the Viceroy's House in 1947 during the Partition of India. The final Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, has to oversee the transition of British India to independence but meets with conflict as the sides clash in the face of monumental changes; ultimately the division of India into separate Hindu and Muslim majority countries, Secular India and Islamic Pakistan. Downstairs in the servants’ quarters, Mountbatten's new manservant, Jeet (Manish Dayal) falls for the daughter's assistant, Alia (Huma Qureshi) and all manner of obstacles are put in their way.
