Set against the backdrop of the 2008 recession, For Here or To Go? is a dramatic comedy about the many personal battles faced by immigrants living in America. Young Silicon Valley software professional Vivek Pandit (Ali Fazal, Victoria & Abdul) is poised to become a key hire at a promising healthcare startup, but when they realize his work visa has less than a year remaining, the offer disappears. Having learned the hard way about the flaws in his “it’s just paperwork” mentality, Vivek battles forces beyond his control to get his visa extended, whether at his existing company or a new job. Just as the prospect of returning home to India starts to look tempting, Vivek meets a girl worth the fight to keep the life he has built in America. Along the way, his eyes are opened to the similar struggles of his own roommates—other immigrants equally seen as “temporary workers” in the United States, who drive nice cars but avoid investing in furniture for fear of having to leave it all behind. American in mind and Indian at heart, this is a contemporary story of ambition and ambivalence fueled by one’s immigration status that characterizes the dilemma of modern cultural displacement. Jury Award Winner at the Seattle South Asian Film Festival. Written by Rishi S. Bhilawadikar and directed by Rucha Humnabadker. (Primarily in English, with some scenes in Hindi with English subtitles.)
