Kimball (Kim) O'Hara is an Irish orphan who makes his living by begging and working small jobs on the streets of Lahore in colonial India during the late nineteenth century. When Kim encounters a Tibetan lama who is seeking to free himself from the Wheel of Things, Kim decides to join the lama’s journey, but soon finds himself thrust into a world of international conflict between Russia and Britain.
Kim was first published as a book in 1901 by Rudyard Kipling and was adapted into a film in 1950 starring Errol Flynn. It has since been adapted into two made-for-television films, one of which starred Peter O’Toole. Kim is considered Kipling’s best novel, as well as one of the most popular British novels of its time.
