附註 After his drunk, abusive father commits a horrible crime, a 12-year-old boy in a factory town in India has his life altered forever when his quick mind and focused determination catches the attention of his father's wealthy employer
By the banks of the River Yamuna in northern India, twelve-year-old Madan lives with his impoverished family in the town of Gorapur. Madan's father works for Avtaar Singh, a powerful and controlling man who owns the largest factory in town and much of the land around it. Madan's sharp mind and hardened determination catch Singh's attention. When Madan's father's misdeeds jeopardize his sister's life, Madan strikes his first bargain with Singh to save her. Drawn into Avtaar Singh's violent world, Madan becomes his son in every way but by blood. Suddenly it looks as if everything will change for Madan and his family until a forbidden love affair has brutal consequences and he is forced to leave behind all that is dear to him. On his journey toward redemption, Madan will have to bargain, once, twice, three times for his life and for the lives of those he loves
