Asha, born and raised in India, is studying abroad in Prague for a year. She longs for deeper connections with people, at a time in her life when everything is about to change. Hank, a filmmaker and lonely new transplant to New York City, is still reeling from a romantic breakup, and facing increasing pressure from his parents to return to North Carolina to rescue the failing family business. When Asha sees Hank’s documentary at a film festival, she feels inspired to send him a video message. Intrigued, Hank responds in kind. Their friendship develops through an unconventional video correspondence, and as their relationship intensifies, they must decide whether or not to meet face to face. “Hank and Asha” unfolds through the video letters they record and send to each other – a modern love story about two people searching for human connection in a hyper-connected world. It’s about isolation, identity, and the irresistible appeal of entertaining life’s what-ifs. “Hank and Asha” celebrates the relationships that have a lasting impact on our lives, whether they last a moment, or a lifetime.
