A brief synopsis of the film, according to the release: “A struggling but upbeat lower middle class man from India aspires to someday come to the U.S. and find success. However, his journey to America does not go according to plan. He answers an ad in the paper for an agent who can bring people to the U.S. for a hefty fee, but the agent turns out to be a Mexican coyote who traffics in illegal immigration. After a dangerous river crossing, he is taken to Kingman, Arizona, where a new series of misadventures gets in the way of his quest for freedom and fortune. Will he ever achieve the American Dream?”
“Mr. Deshee” stars Devanny Pinn (“The Dawn”), Neel Esh Patel, Jagruti Thakor (“Hellaro”), Adam Berardi, Jay Lopez and Sejal Parikh. The film has been shot on the Arizona Mexico border, Las Vegas, and Ahmedabad in India.
