The time is 1975. The place is an unnamed Indian city by the sea. The government has just declared a State of Emergency, in whose upheavals four unlikely strangers - a spirited widow, a young student uprooted from his idyllic hill station, and two tailors who have fled the caste violence of their native village - will be thrust together, forced to share one cramped apartment and an uncertain future. As the characters move from distrust to friendship and from friendship to love, "A Fine Balance" creates an enduring panorama of the human spirit in an inhuman state.
