6 mins

A South Asian woman living in the US reminisces about her childhood in India. As she travels past icons of American culture, fast food restaurants, and patriotic iconography, memories of her childhood friend in India flood back to remind her of her complex identity. An examination of acculturation, A Letter Home moves ritualistically towards empowerment.
