When Anne discovers a long-forgotten family scandal involving her deceased grandmother, Olivia, she decides to investigate further by traveling to the scene of the crime: India. In the 1920s, Olivia had been married to an official in the colonial government, but had an affair with an Indian man that resulted in an abortion and disgrace. By coincidence, Anne also finds herself conducting an affair with an Indian man, and faces similar social prejudice.

“HEAT AND DUST contains wonderful sights and sounds and textures. It is seductive, treating both of its love stories with seriousness; these are not romances, but decisions to dissent.” – Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“After 37 years, HEAT AND DUST stands up as an intelligent, ambitious, substantial picture – with flaws but also intriguing aspects that were perhaps not sufficiently understood at the time.” – Peter Bradshaw, GUARDIAN
