Adi is an outsider, rejected by both her British father's and Indian mother's cultures, so she is no stranger to trouble. But when a mysterious agitator called Coal kidnaps Adi's twin brothers, Adi has to rely on herself to find them. With strength and cunning as fierce as any boy's, she decides to cut her hair and put on a military uniform to slip unnoticed through the chaos of World War I. When Adi finds a pocket watch that could be the clue to her lost brothers, she must figure out a way to decode it --- before time runs out.
