Scenes from the streets of New York, where one transcends the turbulence of life by presence and persistence. It is in the streets of New York that the native is stranger at home and struggles to belong by experiencing the reality of life in diaspora.Humans, in their presence, pass through much turbulence. As strangers in foreign lands, they want to believe the detachment while attached to their roots and traditions.
A time span of twenty-eight years (1981 to 2009) from when one is in exile at home, to where one is in exile a continent and ocean apart form the homeland.
