BOMBAY, 1942

With Mahatma Gandhi’s call to the British to Quit India, the city has become a hotbed of revolutionary activity – student protests, secret magazines and even an underground People’s Radio, which broadcasts news that the British want concealed.

Sakina and her friends Zenobia and Mehul desperately want to be part of this struggle for freedom – even when there is little that they are permitted to do. But at least, they are trying to do something useful, while their mothers are only running a cooking club…

Songs of Freedom explores the lives of children across India during the struggle for independence.
