Two ordinary guys ordered to do the unthinkable
Two long-term friends, Humayun and Babur stand guard at the Taj Mahal hours before it is to be unveiled at dawn. Among the Sacred Oaths of the Mughal Imperial Guards, they are forbidden to look at the monument, speak or lower their swords.
The play reaches a turning point as the guards are ordered to do the unimaginable and their friendship is tested to its limits.
