It is rumoured that Yah moves among the settlements of Seth. Like a lot of these recent movies, the production values actually look pretty amazing in this film, and they seem to have gone to great lengths to duplicate the desolate look of the TV series. Exploring immigration through an extensive oral history project made history more real to the high school students in this teacher’s classroom. Nearly every character – except the heroine – is a historical figure.

The texts have roots in Hebrew, Greek and Roman history. Everyone is entitled to question or criticise the policies or behaviour of any government. Peopled by well-drawn characters, this is an engrossing novel inspired by experiences of Kacer's own family. The event also stirred up religious passions: Wilbur Cross remarks that it was an era in which "every church. .. rang with denunciations of Rome and all her ways" ( Cross 1929: 88). It’s 1947 in India, and Bilal (13) is determined to protect his dying father’s peace of mind by concealing the imminent Partition and creation of Pakistan, which will divide the country along religious lines, separating Muslims like Bilal’s family from the predominantly Hindu population.
