The Heir, which follows the story of Amba and the lengths she will go to in order to protect her daughter. Amba is a pregnant widow to the former chieftain, Charan – a benevolent leader. He loses his life in a battle with an opposing clan and Jagan his brother takes over from him as the chief but their styles of leadership are very different. Amba vows that she is pregnant with a son who will take over the chieftainship. The family matriarch promises to kill the child if it turns out to be a girl. Faced with two insurmountable threats, Amba, after giving birth to a girl, lies. She announces that she has given birth to a boy. Lying about a child’s gender is one thing, the challenge of keeping this lie up on a daily basis is quite another. She is faced with her mother-in-law’s impatience, her brother-in-law’s threats and her daughter’s frustration at having to grow up as a boy.
