Provoked has an important true-life story to tell, of how a Punjabi woman Kiranjit Ahluwalia (Bollywood star and former Miss India, Aishwarya Rai) came to England after an arranged marriage to a violent, drunken sadist and bore him two children.  In 1988, unable to bear the brutality any longer, she poured gasoline over him as he slept and set him on fire.  She was convicted of murder and jailed for 20 years.  She befriends her cellmate, a wealthy white woman, (Miranda Richardson) from whom she learns English.
