When an Indian family moves to America in 1979 with the hope of living the American Dream, their 10-year-old son, Smith, falls head-over-heels for the girl next door. With an American Dream of his own, Smith strives to become a “good ol’ boy,” propelling him and his family further away from their traditional ideals than ever before.
GROWING UP SMITH is a heartfelt coming-of-age comedy about an irrepressibly likeable 10-year-old boy from India who may possibly lose it all—including the love of his life—when his obsession for living the American Dream unexpectedly takes a wrong turn. Click HERE for trailer.
