YOU FOLLOW: A Search For One’s Past
Originally titled My India 09, YOU FOLLOW is a documentary film project that was started in 2009 by a group of four friends who traveled to Goa, India to find Nisha’s birth mother.  It's been two years since that visit.  Now armed with leads, Nisha must travel back to complete her personal journey and to finish the film.  Nisha and a new film crew plan on heading back to Goa this January and could use some help.
