Set against the sweeping grandeur of the Himalayas and tea plantations of Northern India, the drama tells the rich and explosive story of the decline of the British Empire and the birth of modern India, from both sides of the experience. But at the heart of the story lie the implications and ramifications of the tangled web of passions, rivalries and clashes that define the lives of those brought together in this summer which will change everything.

This series is supposed to transfer the viewer into the far 1934 when there is a warm March outside and the gorgeous India presents us its picturesque beauties. This country is distinguished by its brightness, contrasting effects and singularity. During this period of time the country is ruled by British governors. They amount to some thousand. The only thing they cannot manage is the weather. In summer it is so unbearable here that the British prefer to rule the subcontinent from somewhere in the Himalayas. Simola is an island where the governors live for the summertime. Here they have a closed elite club and its owner is a middle-aged but still beautiful woman Cynthia. Her strong and severe temper allows her to hold a senior role. Besides she is able to blend into any company. So this is exactly in this club where the most interesting events will take place causing great changes. Also the series will show us not only the luxury lives of moneybags but also of common people and servicing staff. And of course love stories full of passion and vivid emotions will also take place here.
