Plot Summary
In this fact-based film, disillusioned Indian Nathuram Godse (Horst Buchholz) becomes so disturbed by the daily conflict he witnesses between Muslims and Hindu Nationalists that he decides he must assassinate Gandhi. In anticipation of his crime, Godse spends the hours leading up to the murder recounting the events of his life that brought him to this point, including his doomed love affair with married Rani (Valerie Gearon) and his own violent interactions with Muslims.
