A Touch of Brightness connects divine inspiration with the ills and hardships of our material world. When Rukmini is sold into prostitution by her dear friend’s father, she finds little solace in her friend’s attempts to get her out, since he has very little chance of raising the money. But Rukmini has a secret: she is brilliantly versed in sacred texts, and rapturously devoted to her faith. She couldn’t have known that this knowledge would be her undoing, and her quest to find brightness in herself and turn it loose may be the very thing that plunges her into darkness.
