This is on my “to see list”. It’s not easy being shortlisted for the Academy Awards, but that’s what Rahul Gandotra did in 2011 with his live-action short film, The Road Home.
It tells the story of Pico, a student who runs away from school, hoping to get to the airport and return to London. Pico looks Indian on the outside, but on the inside, he is British.

This film is for anyone who questions where they are from, at any time of their life. Any one who has had an outsider experience or has left their country can relate to this movie.
