‘Finding Home’ is the last project I worked on as a Sound Mixer. The film directed by Rohit Sonak tells the story of survival, ambition and a man’s pursuit of the American dream. Akash, an Indian immigrant looses his job at an investment bank and according to immigration has one month to find another job or go back to India. Through Akash we meet Javed Ali an illegal immigrant from Pakistan who has married a Spanish woman, Anna for papers. Anna is blackmailing him for more money otherwise she will not appear for the interview next month. The film is a drama that deals with the universal theme of belonging, man’s struggle for a better life and the choice between love vs. money, a choice between one’s motherland and foreign country.
