'I am Kim. I am Kim. And what is Kim?' His soul repeated it again and again. Set against the backdrop of Britain and Russia’s political struggle in central Asia, Kim, the son of a drunken Irish soldier grows up as a street-wise orphan in the city of Lahore. Playful and spirited, Kim befriends an aged Tibetan Lama and journeys with him across India, experiencing the exotic culture, religion and people of the subcontinent. On their travels they came across Kim's father's old army regiment and as his adventures take him further into the world of secret agents and political intrigue, Kim is torn between his spiritual self and the expectations of his British compatriots.
