OUTSOURCED is a comedy of cross cultural differences with a touch of romance, focusing on the life of Todd Anderson, 32, (Josh Hamilton) who manages a customer call center in Seattle until he gets the bad news from his boss: his job has been outsourced. Adding insult to injury, he must go to India to train his own replacement. He expects the worst experience of his life, and it certainly begins that way. The chaos of Bombay assaults his senses, and his new office there is paralyzed by cultural misunderstandings. But as he gets to know his co-workers, Todd finds them disarming and thoroughly likable, including his friendly replacement Puro (Asif Basra), and the charming, opinionated Asha (Ayesha Dharker). He realizes that he has a lot to learn - about India, America and himself - and that being outsourced may be the best thing that ever happened to him.
Marking a brilliant first feature film directing effort from John Jeffcoat, OUTSOURCED is a Shadowcatcher Entertainment/Tom Gorai Production.
