Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
When the 32-year-old manager of a Seattle customer call center receives word that his entire Order Fulfillment department is about to be outsourced to India, his initial anger gives way to a newfound sense of wonder as he travels to Mumbai to train his replacement. Todd (Josh Hamilton) is facing unemployment, but in the meantime he has accepted a temporary job to travel to India and ensure the company's transition is a smooth one. Though at first nonplussed by his unfamiliar new surroundings, Todd is subsequently disarmed by the friendliness of his likeable replacement, Puro (Asif Basra), and charmed by co-worker Asha's (Ayesha Dharker) offer to better familiarize the newcomer with the people and customs of India. As Todd begins to sow the seeds of productivity among his amiable new employees and gains the ability to look past their cultural differences, an overnight business trip that lands Todd and Asha together at a Kamasutra Hotel threatens to complicate the endeavor in ways that the outsourced American never anticipated.
