It is 1979 in Punjab, India. The U.S. space station – SKYLAB – hurtles toward the Indian sub-continent. A young Punjabi boy, six-year-old Puneet, just stomped on a frog during play. Now, as he listens to a radio broadcast about the imminent crash, he fills with dread that SKYLAB will strike his home and kill him and his family. This charming story, inspired by true events, draws us into Puneet’s exotic world and with his struggle as a boy growing up.

A young Latina woman in an abusive relationship watches her life fall apart when Child Protective Services takes custody of her children. She is ordered to see a psychiatrist to have a chance at regaining custody of her children. In the end, it is unclear who has gained more from their sessions.
Set against the picturesque cityscape of Chicago, Bloom is a contemporary look at Latino youth, the value of family and how everyone, no matter their circumstances, must overcome challenges in order to better their lives.
