Production Description

Film Independent/Project Involve is casting a five-minute short film to be screened at a special sidebar screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival and shown on television for air on PBS. Commissioned by Film Independent for their Project Involve program which cultivates the careers of filmmakers from diverse backgrounds.

Producer's description: "A recent immigrant to U.S.A, Tejpreet Kaur Singh, is reluctant to embrace her new American identity. Her husband, on the other hand, loudly and annoyingly celebrates everything that mildly reeks of America. But when Tejpreet witnesses her husband deflate because of a racist encounter during the Fourth of July celebrations, she rises above the hate and ignorance by defiantly claiming America as their home."
