We had just won independence, but all was not well. The horrors of the partition were real. Living in the heart of a simmering Delhi, young Ashok and Priya can't wait to meet their friends Asghar and Afshan. But the elders won't let them. This is when sequestered in their hall, they overhear a plan: A plan to murder a Muslim family. As the kids try to find allies and save their friends, they must face people blinded by hate and personal vendetta. Will they succeed or lose their friends forever? Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous events of independence and partition, When the Clock struck 12 is a tale of innocence, unity, and courage, but most importantly, of friendship.
