She finds the country in a state of chaos, with the British military still occupying the land and Indians rioting to protest the foreigners’ presence. When Victoria meets British colonel Rodney Savage (Stewart Granger), who is in charge of troops at Bhowani Junction; he promptly falls in love with her, however, she is in love with Patrick Taylor (Bill Travers), the Anglo-Indian rail superintendent.
