We are in it chronicles the stories and journeys of five Houston residents and their attempt to find refuge in this American metropolis. By combining tales of deportation with everyday defeats and resilience, it identifies what lies beneath the surface of migrant and refugee realities and the unsettling need to move towards political and economic security. The film documents their personal archives – poetry and paintings of Baghdad, film clips of the Burmese diaspora, songs in Swahili – and their efforts to re-envisage a home amidst experiences of trivialized war, hardship, and alienation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://vimeo.com/174896397″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text css_animation=””]

You can’t move forward, if all you do is keep looking back.
‘Home By Now’ is a characters-driven drama set in present-day New York City. Kyle and Sarah are a young, newly married couple living in Manhattan. After meeting in college, falling in love, and getting married, Kyle and Sarah seem to have an ideal life with a great future ahead of them. However, their differing personalities take a substantial toll on their relationship. Kyle, although bright and sensitive, is a dreamer- unable to live in the present and appreciate all that life has to offer. Sarah, on the other hand, is intelligent and pragmatic, and is able to truly enjoy the ‘here and now.’ Such differences in their personality traits threaten to tear the couple apart. It takes an extraordinary journey on the part of Kyle to appreciate all that life has given him. However, will Sarah wait for Kyle while he experiences his life-altering journey or will it be too late for both of them?
‘Home By Now’ is a coming-of-age, self-discovery journey that depicts the necessity of appreciating life in all of its nuances and charms.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5O6jNsAfqk&feature=youtu.be”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]
