Anu’s beloved grandfather Bapu moved from India to Anu’s home in the Pacific Northwest when Anu was young, and Anu is devastated when Bapu dies. But when she is visited by Bapu’s ghost, she knows that there must be a way to bring Bapu back to life—she’s just not sure how. Anu enlists her friends Izzy and Unger to help her. From shaving her head to making up fortunes in the hope of becoming more holy, Anu tries everything. She even journeys to the island of the Mystery Museum. Perhaps there, Karnak the Magician will be able to help?
This film delves deep into the realities of immigrant life, female agency and the importance of empowering female voices from childhood.
