LAND OF GOLD

Kiran Singh (Nardeep Khurmi), a 1st generation Punjabi-American, has just accepted a last-minute trucking job to Boston which causes a blow-up argument with Preeti (Pallavi Sastry), his 37-week pregnant wife, who admits to feeling abandoned.

En route, Kiran discovers Elena (Caroline Valencia), a 10-year-old Mexican-American stowed away in his trailer. After debating the merits of turning her into the police, Kiran deduces she might be undocumented, and resolves to shepherd Elena to her uncle in Boston despite putting his livelihood in jeopardy.

As the pair ride across the changing American landscape, Kiran faces what it means to be a father and Elena learns how to trust again. They connect through family, dreams of the future, and a healthy debate over God’s existence, all while the ghosts of the past, racially charged encounters, and the threat of I.C.E. linger over their journey.

A profoundly poignant and timely look at solidarity, difference, and found family, LAND OF GOLD is a modest marvel and a tremendous calling card for both writer-director-star Khurmi and scene-stealer Valencia. Bursting with heart, conviction, and power, LAND OF GOLD maximizes the potential in its premise to become something much greater than the sum of its parts.
