Ashish's Journey

When Ashish lies to his family, pretending that he was chosen as India’s representative for the Soccer World Cup, he starts an initiatory journey that leads him from the peaceful bubble of his small Indian city to a stadium worker job backstage, as we follow his point of view on the international event.

Ashish’s Journey is Ali El Arabi’s second feature documentary.
