Summary: In a world rapidly being torn asunder by violence, racism and suspicion, there is a growing despondence and a feeling that almost all of humanity is at cross purposes, and most of it at war. There is a dire need for reassurance that not all is lost, that the fundamental goodness of humanity is still intact. There need to be more love stories than revenge dramas, more stories of real life heroes than superhero sagas. There need to be more stories that reinforce our faith in each other rather than a mythical messiah who might never arrive to save us. A Billion Colour Story is one such story.
This is the story of a Family of filmmakers who sell their house in order to finance their film project. It follows the struggle of Hindu wife and Mother Parvati, 11 year old, but wise beyond his years Hari Aziz, and optimistic Muslim Father Imran, who holds a blind faith in the people of India to put their prejudice and hatred aside. The family experience today’s India, highlighting modern religious divides, intolerance and prejudice as they fight to make their film.
