First generation Indian-American college student Sureel deceives his traditional, immigrant parents so he can follow his dreams of being a musician. His traditional upbringing at home, coupled with the progressive American world around him, make for a duality of deception. Now in his senior year at college his parents mistakenly assume he's graduating pre-med instead of pursuing his rock 'n' roll sitar passions. Ultimately Sureel is forced to reconcile his old world values with his new world dreams.
