Unable to bear the brutality and repeated rapes by her alcoholic husband, a battered Punjabi housewife and mother of two in London, sets him on fire ands kills him. Sentenced for life, in prison she befriends her cell mate, a wealthy white woman, who becomes her mentor and teaches her English. Her case comes to the notice of a motley group of south Asian social workers running an under funded organization called Southall Black Sisters. They bring her plight to the attention of the media by organizing rallies to gather public support for her freedom. Granted appeal, she is freed by the Royal Court in a landmark judgment that redefined the meaning of the word PROVOCATION in the case of battered women.
