Several groups of people are making their way along a desolate stretch of highway in India’s dangerous Kutch region. Seven-year-old Adiyta, from Mumbai, has become separated from his parents and is befriended by a truck driver on a perilous smuggling mission. Poonya, an 11-year-old girl who has run away from the city to find her grandmother, finds herself in danger of becoming a victim of human trafficking. Over the course of 24 hours, the lives of these protagonists and others are dramatically intertwined as The Good Road explores the intersection of modern, urban India with its unseen, underdeveloped rural counterpart. This starkly beautiful metaphysical road movie, shot in one of India’s most isolated locations, won the Best Gujarati Feature Prize at India’s National Film Awards and is this year’s Indian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (92 mins.)

First feature.
