India, 1648. Two hapless and lowly Imperial Guards watch from their posts as the sun rises for the first time over the newly-completed Taj Mahal. But the morning light brings with it an unthinkable task that will shake the foundations of everything they know to be true. In this deeply moving story, two friends behold the most sublime of wonders and discover the perils of bearing witness to perfection.

“A piercing examination of the nature of beauty, its relationship to power, and its unspeakable costs” - Chicago Reader
