Your Grandfather's Road continues to hunt for actors and actresses! Whether you're a new talent, or an established actor/actress, we would like to audition you.
The title of this feature-length film is "Your Grandfather's Road", and it will be directed by Manesh Nesaratnam. Language: Malay (main) with some English, Mandarin and Tamil.
WHAT IS THE STORY ABOUT
Five characters find themselves thrust onto the road, criss-crossing the country chasing for revenge, love and redemption. Ashraf, unjustly deported on the night before a show-down with his future-in-laws needs desperately to get back into Malaysia; Rafiq, a ruthless snatch thief, finds a note that compels him to drop everything to save an unknown girl's life; Illya, makes her final journey to Penang to confront her sexual aggressor-uncle; Tanya, being pursued by the government for defaulting her study loan needs to exit the country ASAP; Alex, a heartless corporate rat-racer suddenly discovers the existence of his own conscience when a girl gets raped because of him. Set during Hari Raya and across the backdrop of the picturesque Malaysian landscape, the characters have 24 hours to make up their minds: change the course of their lives forever or die.
