Summary
Adela Quested travels to India to visit her fiance who is the city magistrate of Chandrapore. She is accompanied on the adventure by his mother, Mrs. Moore, an elderly woman who is appalled at the treatment of the Indians by the British who rule and occupy Chandrapore. Both women befriend a young Indian man, Dr. Aziz, who, over-stepping the accepted boundaries between the classes, invites the women on a picnic excursion to the Marabar caves. In a strange turn of events, the young doctor is accused of attempting to rape Miss Quested. What actually did happen in the Marabar caves is the central riddle of this lush, engrossing film
