Four Nights

Ram and Maya have moved thousands of miles from their home in Nepal in the hope of realising their dream in New York City. As Ram works to finish his feature film, Maya, normally an actor by profession, receives a job offer that puts a strain on their relationship and calls into question what they are willing to sacrifice to continue their lives as international filmmakers.
