The theme of this screenplay is original and touches on a very important issue for many teenagers. Parents often have goals and dreams for their children, and they aren't usually the same as what a teenager has in mind. This shows a nice sneak peak into the culture of India. Bully comments like "singing like a homo," "screw you" and "you're such an ass" would need to be removed or softened in order to garner a higher KIDS FIRST! review.
Stuck in a unhappy rut, a confused Indian-American sixteen-year-old boy finds sudden popularity when his singing talents are recognized by his classmates. Just when he thinks he has the world on a string, his parents discover he has been lying to them, sneaking out and disgracing the family. He must decide to follow the rigid life of academics his parents have chosen for him or embrace his love of arts and accept the consequences that will go with his decision.
