Abstract:

"Bombay provides American and British outsourcing firms with access to well-educated, English-speaking youths eager to get ahead, and willing to sacrifice almost anything to do it. For their efforts, they are paid more money than their parents ever dreamed of earning. And they spend it, frequenting a new brand of all-night discos that cater to their unusual office hours. [The film explores] this bustling world of late nights, long hours and hard partying. The result is a compelling insider's look at youth culture in India, and at the growing number of young people who choose to follow the American dream, Indian style"--Publisher's website.
