 The Elephant 
  in the Room

By: Priyanka Shetty

SYNOPSIS: After making the bold move to defy her family by quitting her IT job and moving to the US to pursue an acting career, things don’t quite turn out how Priyanka imagined. Gear up for a funny, tumultuous ride through immiscible cultures, unforgettable love, irreparable loss, and the desperation of not belonging anywhere. A witty and dark comedy about your typical Indian metalhead and software-engineer-turned-actor who must navigate life as an immigrant arriving in Trump’s America.
