(Feature Film) IN DEVELOPMENT
Shortlisted for the Sundance Writers Lab 2015
For a short space of time, the lives of Amara Rahim and Noah Faraday intersect in the Scottish town of Tarbert as they become a part of each other’s journeys. Vignettes thread together their experiences, as well as those of their ancestors. We see how Amara’s family came to be in Scotland, her great grandfather working as a door to door salesman, her grandfather finding himself an illiterate new arrival lost in the town. These vignettes bring up questions of identity and belonging. Where do we belong? Who do we belong to? Where is home? How do we form our identities? Through this the film explores the parallels that exist in the lives of these characters across time, countries, culture and gender.
