Kim, a young Irish boy, lives alone on the streets of the Indian city of Lahore. He meets an old Tibetan lama who is looking for a sacred river. The boy and the old man become great friends and travel across British India. This is Rudyard Kipling's greatest book - a story about the British empire, spies, friendship, spirituality and, most of all, India.
