How much should one sacrifice for their family? Is money the only solution to all the hardships?
When Vasu and Mustafa embark on their individual journeys to the Gulf, they have only one aim—to earn money. Leaving their families behind, they cross the sea to join the distinguished and envied league of ‘Gulfees’.
But money from Gulf was unable to stop tragedy from striking them. The Gulf dream sours and forces them to reassess their priorities. As they lurch between love and money, life gives them lessons in endurance and escape.
However, does coming back home right all wrongs? Can they salvage anything worthwhile from the debris of their already mangled lives?
Sandstorms, Summer Rains is a moving narrative of dreams and deprivations of two men and their families. A story that prods us to evaluate our own priorities and preferences in a world that is incorrigibly materialistic. It is life watched at close quarters with crushing honesty.
