Gulaami documents the experiences of a Girmitiya (Indentured Labourer) in Fiji who is originally from the village of Devadeha in the district of Basti in Uttar Pradesh.

The reinvented slave trade of the mid 1850s by the British resulted in the removal of hundreds of thousands of Indians from their motherland, India and transplanted against their wishes in the British colonies (including Fiji) across the globe.

In the South Pacific setting, slavery in Fiji is a story of the forgotten stolen generation right in the backyard of countries such as Australia and New Zealand.

The story of Gulaami is about the ancestors of the Fijiindians who sacrificed so much for the betterment of Fiji and the emergence of the Fijiindian society, who are still struggling for equality and justice in the only country that they have known since their birth, Fiji.
