Synopsis:
A Passage to India is "a wonderfully provocative tale, full of vivid characters, all played to near perfection" (The New York Times). With the director's "strongest cast in years" (Time Out) including Judy Davis, James Fox, Sir Alec Guinness, and Nigel Havers. When liberal-minded English ladies Mrs Moore (Ashcroft) and Adela Quested (Davis) arrive in India, they're shocked by the prejudice that exists there. The gentle Dr Aziz (Victor Banerjee) rises above the intolerance and guides the women on a tour of the splendid and mysterious Marabar caves; but when Adela runs terrified from the caves scratched and bleeding, news of the incident spreads across the whole of India... igniting a powder keg of tension that has been waiting to explode.

Circa 1920, during the Indian British rule, Dr. Aziz H. Ahmed was born and brought up in India. He is proficient in English, and wears Western style clothing. He meets an old lady, Mrs. Moore, at a mosque, who asks him to accompany her and her companion, Adela Quested, for sight-seeing around some caves. Thereafter the organized life of Aziz is turned upside down when Adela accuses him of molesting her in a cave. Aziz is arrested and brought before the courts, where he learns that the entire British administration is against him, and would like to see him found guilty and punished severely, to teach all native Indians what it means to molest a British citizen. Aziz is all set to witness the "fairness" of the British system, whose unofficial motto is "guilty until proved innocent."

Adela Quested, a young Englishwoman, travels to India in the late 1920s to visit her fiancé, a British magistrate posted in a small town; her traveling companion is his mother Mrs. Moore. They want to see something of the country and to meet everyday Indians, but are frustrated by the British community's insistence that relations with the locals are best experienced from a distance. Finally, a friend introduces them to a Muslim doctor whom Mrs. Moore had seen briefly on her visit to a mosque. He takes them on an outing to the nearby caverns (a local attraction), but what happens there threatens to destroy any civility between the British and Indian societies.
