Director Eisha Marjara’s story takes us first to her childhood in snowbound small-town Quebec and then to Bombay India where she desperately tries to track down Helen, a famous movie star in the worlds largest dream factory. Helen becomes a passage into Marjara’s real world—her unsettling youth, life threatening anorexia and the devastating 1985 Air India bombing which took the lives of her sister and mother. This film revisits the 70’s pop culture of Marjara’s youth and enters the fascinating world of the Bombay movie industry—“Bollywood.”
