Both hitting dead ends in life, Indian American housewife Jyothi (Jagathi Kamalakanthan) and young stoner musician Sophie (Lucy Kaminsky) meet at a Durham, North Carolina pawn shop and soon after find their lives unexpectedly linked through a wild, surreal road trip—on the run from the law together to Montreal, Canada. Like a comedically offbeat Thelma & Louise, it’s the unlikely story of two lost souls… with confrontations, recriminations, and a full-blown Bollywood style dance number.
