The Girl Who Cries Blood

Dr. George Buchanan examining Twinkle while she is bleeding from the eyes.
Twinkle spontaneously bleeds from her eyes as well as her head, hands and other body parts -- though there is no visible source or injury to explain it. Some say a bad omen has been cast, others think she is possessed, and yet others think it could be self-inflicted. Hoping for a breakthrough, Twinkle and her mother put their faith in a top American blood specialist who is flying to India to investigate her extraordinary case.
