There is an ancient legend, which says that the sting of the local scorpion in the deep desert of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan is bound to kill in 24 hours. The scorpion’s poison builds a feverish melody within the victim. The only cure is to find a sage singer who can read the melody in the victim’s pulse and then sing a counter-melody.
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 treachery that sets her on a perilous journey to avenge herself and find her song.
