The warm coming-of-age story of Smith, a 10-year-old boy from India living in small-town America in 1979. As his family tries to straddle the line between embracing the American Dream and preserving their Indian heritage, Smith sneaks out for a taste of Kentucky Fried Chicken, dons a “Saturday Night Fever” costume, and falls in love with Amy, the girl next door. And in Amy’s father, Butch, Smith finds the all-American cowboy he wishes his own father could be.

The warm coming-of-age story of a young Indian boy whose family moves to the US, where he obsessively chases the American ideal.
