The Distance Between Us (2012)


Starring Rahul Rai, Leah Kavita, Akshay Reddy, Ariane Mallon and Jonah Ehrenreich. Written & Directed by Chandu Yarram
Short Synopsis: Megha, a young ambitious software engineer has just graduated from university in India. 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. But success doesn’t come without sacrifice and the plot weaves through a set of choices of love and ambition where each decision leads to unexpected consequences.
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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In the Days of Slavery, 2 Men Seek to Be Free

Stunning Novel Tells ‘A Tale of Two Slaves’

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “As long as the mind is enslaved, the body can never be free.”

In the powerful novel A Tale of Two Slaves and Free Men: Who Never Saw Home Again, both the horrors of slavery and its benevolence are lived out in a bittersweet story. When a Masai boy is captured by slavers, he sees his parents killed. Renamed Abdul, the child grows up as a slave serving a kindly Arab doctor. His love for the doctor’s granddaughter is not permitted for a slave. To protect them, the doctor takes them far away where Abdul can become a medicine man.

But then his love and his master die. In his sorrow, Abdul takes in a boy who was also captured by slavers. He names the child Moses. Once slaves, both Abdul and Moses are now free, though they will never see their homeland again. This unforgettable tale shows how even the worst in life can be eased by love and friendship.
