General Heatherstone, who was a while ago a part of the Indian Army, moved to Cloomber Hall. The general was however acting strange and was paranoid for most of the time. His fears were apparently caused by things that happened in his past during the First Afghan War. The situation worsened when three priests from Kurrachee arrived and demanded a meeting with the general. What will happen with him? Will he have the courage to face his past or he will try to run away? What was the real reason for his fears? What was so bad that it caused him paranoid outbursts even forty years later?
