The Jumbie Bird
The Jumbie Bird is the tragic story of an East Indian family stranded in Trinidad, betrayed by the authorities and discarded by Mother India. No-one can escape the sinister call of The Jumbie Bird, a ghostly message of death. It haunts the childhood world of Jamini: his father, a struggling jeweller; his fierce, proud grandfather, Kale Khan, a born fighter who dreams of returning to India; and the doomed relationship with his childhood sweetheart, Lakshmi. The Jumbie bird returns, a symbolic and fearful omen, as Kale Khan prepares for his final battle.
