    • Synopsis
    • The Song of Scorpions is a story of twisted love, revenge and the redemptive power of a song.
      Nooran, carefree and defiantly independent, is a tribal woman learning the ancient art of healing from her grandmother, a revered scorpion-singer.
      When Aadam, a camel trader in the Rajasthan desert, hears her sing, he falls desperately in love.
      But even before they can get to know each other better, Nooran is poisoned by a brutal treachery
      that sets her on a perilous journey to avenge herself and find her song.
