A vivid story of two girls' journey from Melbourne to Madras. Madras, 1910: two girls are caught up in a scandal that will change their lives forever. Singing and dancing across a hundred stages in a troupe of child performers, they travel by steam-train into the heart of India. But as one disaster follows another, money runs short, and tempers fray, what must the girls do to protect themselves, and how many lives will be ruined if they try to break free?
