A Hindu doctor with dementia and a Muslim driver form an unlikely friendship as they journey across India in an auto rickshaw. A journey of a thousand miles has a way of breaking down walls and, along the way, they forge an unforgettable friendship. By the end of the journey, they help one another find the peace each has been longing for.

John Upchurch, director of Mango Dreams, will be in attendance and will remain following the screening to conduct a Q&A session with the audience.

This film is part of the 2016-17 Southern Circuit tour of independent films, which Oxford College was selected to be a part of. An initiative of the Atlanta-based arts organization South Arts, Southern Circuit brings the best of independent film to communities across the South. Audiences have seen over 300 films and have engaged filmmakers in post-screening discussions in more than 100 communities across the Southern United States. The tour takes the audience away from their televisions and computers to connect them with independent filmmakers. Southern Circuit transforms watching independent films from a solitary experience into a communal one.

This is an Oxford Studies event.
