The Story

a coming of age romantic Comedy.

High school seniors Nick and Arti are stuck at a family party.
Can they plan an escape to the big concert? Or is this family party the end of the line?

The reason I am making this film is very important: it’s to change the way South Asian society is depicted in cinema.
