Magical Midnight Children

At the stroke of midnight on Aug 15, 1947 when the country becomes independent from colonial rule, the children born, within the hour of the birth of the new-found country, come to life with special powers. Their struggles, conflicts and issues play out as the country grapples to find its own independent feet.
