The filmmaker and her grandfather are on a journey across Awadh, the heart of northern India. They are looking for traces of the world that shaped Aseemun, an obscure but talented folk singer who was part of both their lives. Using home video footage, old photographs and extensive music, the film travels, literally and otherwise, into a way of life that combined the best of Hindu and Muslim cultures. Part road movie, part family album, 'In Search of Aseemun' offers a glimpse into the changing emotional and physical terrain of timeless India, as seen through the eyes of an Indian Muslim family.
