When Ashoke and Ashima Ganguli leave their home in the Indian city of Calcutta to start a new life in New York in the late 1970s, they realise that there are going to be many cultural differences to get used to. But the most difficult adjustments come with the growing up of their son - a quiet boy called Gogol. as he becomes a young man, Gogol grows ever more distanced from his parents - not through anger, but simply because having been born and raised in the US, he identifies more strongly as an American than with his Indian heritage. A thoughtful and handsomely told tale, adapted from an acclaimed novel by writer Jhumpa Lahiri.
A couple travel to try to figure out whether birthplace France, where as Arabs they are outsiders, or their parents' Algeria, is their true homeland.
