LOGLINE: After getting laid off from his job of over 35 years, Dandekar goes on a meaning-of-life journey, searching for his beloved '87 Volvo that was traded away by his well intentioned family. Along the way, he learns how to grieve what once was, and move forward.


SYNOPSIS: After getting laid off from his job of thirty years, 69-year-old RK Dandekar falls into a depression, sitting around his home eating too much, and driving around in his '89 Volvo. In an effort to cheer him up, his wife and kids buy him a fancy new car, trading away his old Volvo.
