In the isolated British outpost of Fort Kandahar on the North-West Frontier of British India during the mid 1850’s, a British Officer of mixed race parentage is discovered to have been conducting an affair with the wife of one of his white colleagues. The husband is subsequently murdered by Pathan bandits while the two men are out on a reconnaissance mission in the Afghan mountains, in search of a local mullah warrior who has been organising armed resistance to British rule. Already greatly mistrusted and despised by his racist superiors, and now rejected by his former lover, Officer Case is court marshaled on a trumped up charge of cowardice in the face of the enemy, for not staying to rescue his fellow officer from the bloodlust of the Gilzhai tribesmen.
