MKE Film Festival

Kiran is a young, irresponsible man about to become a father. He's a first-generation Punjabi American working as a truck driver. When Kiran hears pounding on a shipping container, he discovers an undocumented girl named Elena. Everything changes as they set out on a cross-country road trip to search for Elena's family. They evade authorities while fighting and bonding over music, paint swatches, and what it means to be seen as "an other" in modern America.
