This Canadian short film shows the lengths that Pria (Natasha Chandel), a 15-year-old South Asian girl goes to in an effort to lose her accent, mainly by mimicking lines from favorite movies. She does this because she fancies a boy she sees every week at a local coffee shop, and she’s convinced he’ll run away if he hears how she speaks.
But she may be in for a suprise…
Funniest line from the movie, son replies to father who wonders what the daughter is up to: “She wants to talk like a man.”

This film was screened Friday November 3rd, 2006 at the Indo-American Arts Council’s sixth film festival.
