Festival starts in


Beneath her stethoscope and bindi, Dr. Bridget Upadhya is an awkward Indian-American whose only friends are her cats. When she attends the funeral of a patient, she forges an unexpected friendship with someone very different from her in every way.

Key cast: Jaya McSharma

Film completion date: July 2018

Director's Statement:

After 15 years in medicine, I quit my job as a full-time physician to go after my dreams. Woo! I wrote this film out of an actual experience I had with a patient. I believe it offers a unique and quirky perspective that is timely and . . . appropriately awkward?
