Ben (Randy Ryan) and his wife, Meera (Rebecca Hazlewood) are vacationing in Mumbai and attending a party at the iconic Taj Mahal Hotel when it comes under terrorist siege by gunmen. Finding themselves trapped and their friends massacred, the couple manages to stay alive and hidden for the time being as they witness the horrors. When it becomes apparent that help isn't coming any time soon, the young couple is compelled to make life-altering choices in order to reunite with the son they have left at home. This is the first ever motion picture dramatization of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. The short is also the basis for a full feature intertwining four separate love stories set against a backdrop of terror around the world including London, New York and Rio de Janeiro.
