FAR FROM HOME

Director:  Nitesh Anjaan

Nitesh's father has made a decision that will change his and his children's lives forever. After 39 years in Denmark, he wants to give up his Danish residence permit and move back to India to start a new life. And once the decision is made, he can't take it back. 

Nitesh sets out on a filmmaking journey to understand his mysterious father and his irrevocable decision. As the film progresses, a complex and dramatic picture emerges of a life that did not go according to plan.

Far from Home is a personal story about dislocation, addiction and the fragile yet enduring bond between father and son.
