Set in a mythical India at the start of the first millennium, The Long Road to Nalanda is the story of a young outcaste, Abhi, who is offered as blood sacrifice to the giant snake God, Jwala.
Abhi, a feisty young adolescent, must discover how she can overcome the dark forces raging against her. Intent on revenge, she travels through a collapsed empire where rival groups are competing for dominance. Abhi is befriended by a bunch of misfits, but, unable to make sense of her survival, she resorts to a desperate act of vengeance.
Will Abhi’s fateful action trigger the fall of a kingdom, as foretold in the ancient prophecy? And who will Abhi become if she emerges from the ashes?
