YOU FOLLOW: a search for one’s past

Tweetable Logline:

Adoptee on the search to find her birth mother.

Elevator Pitch:

An adoptee from India goes back to her homeland to search for her birth mother. Throughout her 2 month stay, she has no luck in the search until she meets a food vendor named Tony; who devotes his time to helping Nisha reach her dream.

Production Team:

Producer/Subject: Nisha Grayson
Producer: Brad Lavery
Director: Sharmila Ray

About the Production:

“‘YOU FOLLOW’ is not just a film about reconnecting but it is also a film about human connecting as a whole. The fact that this one man takes Nisha’s journey so personal and connects with it, makes this film stand out from others. He devotes his time in helping find Nisha’s birth mother and within 2 years he is able to locate Nisha’s family in India. This is an amazing journey that really challenges the human psyche and shows that we meet people in our lives for a certain reason. ” — Brad Lavery
