Longer Synopsis: At a time when outsourcing to India is a hot topic for political debate, here is a fresh look at the Knowledge Worker seen from the perspective of a fresh graduate full of ambition but also harboring her first feelings of true love. Megha is a young ambitious software engineer and has just graduated from university in India. With her school fees paid by a rich benefactor and mounting hospital bills for her father's illness she wants to break the cycle of poverty that she was born into and may just have a business idea that will win her success.
Megha sets out on her journey to the USA where she is promised a top executive role at an emerging technology company – the job offers a luxury apartment, a company car, and perhaps most importantly – a fast track to get her Green Card. But success doesn’t come without sacrifice and tough choices. Megha has a lot to learn about the life of an Indian immigrant in the USA. Living standards are barely a step above illegal farm workers and employers with business practices that draw a lot from the sex trade. All the while the draw of that elusive Green Card will come between Megha and her true love. A story of broken ambitions but the triumph of the human spirit.
