About the Movie
Roger Moreau lives anonymously and aimlessly in Toronto. When his adopted mother dies unexpectedly, Rog loses the last tie he has to his Canadian upbringing and identity and he decides to travel thousands of miles away to India to find the birth family that gave him up for adoption nearly thirty years ago. His arrival is jarring, however, when he steps off the plane into the crowded sweaty streets of Mumbai and is confronted by his own foreignness in a strange, new land. While eager to be reunited with his family, complications immediately threaten Rog’s search; a Catholic orphanage reveals his documents are forgeries.More desperate than ever, Rog sets out on a quest heading into Madhya Pradesh – the impoverished, rural heartland of India - to find the one local official who can help him solve the mystery surrounding his adoption.Rog’s journey takes him into the dark alleys, dusty roads and cramped train cars of India’s underclass as he tries to connect the threads of his own story. Ultimately, Rog is pushed to his physical and emotional breaking point and forced to confront the ghosts that have been haunting him his entire life – only then is he able to discover the truth.
Insightful and Intelligent
I was taken aback by the sheer intelligence and creativity of this film KHOYA. It was a really intimate look at the experience of a young North American man returning to his country of origin to find something he never realized he was missing. Very metaphorical and meditative film. A must-watch!
