What happens when a Frenchman falls in love with a young Indian guy?
Set in India with a French protagonist, and written by a Frenchman, French Sahib is a French-Indian love story revealing the taboos of Indian society and the hypocrisies of French milieu. On his arrival in India Philippe is confronted with the traditional Indian values which are very unlikely from the country he hails from. When young Dipu wants to marry Philippe it is the stereotyped social values that become the stumbling block in their romance. How can they confront the unbridgeable gulf between the traditional East and the modern West?
In French Sahib Pierre Fréha tells that amusing tale of identity, individuality, love and universal human need for connection and belonging.
