Abstract:

About to graduate from college, a gay Indian filmmaker travels across America with his family visiting from India, as he waits for the right moment to come out to them. Having been tested for HIV just prior to his trip, and believing that he may be infected, he struggles not only with his concern for his familial relationships, but also with concerns for his future health. Exploring the dynamics of secrecy and love that mark this close-knit family, this work pushes the limits of personal documentary at every achingly intimate moment, including that of his mother's reaction to the disclosure of his sexuality.
