Written By Shah Peerally & Joe Barcelone
Shah Peerally Productions Inc. comes forward with its latest short fictional film “ The Lost Dream” inspired by true current events. Directed by Renato Asuncion with Joe Barcelone as ‘Trent’, the president of a multi-millions dollars American company and Naz Khan as their lawyer ‘Sarah’, the movie revolves around the gripping and exciting story of how the break of the American dream and the difficulties towards Indian appeals for visas for skilled people who can contribute to their own as well as the American well being.
Shah Peerally Law Group PC has tried to make a difference in American Immigration history by writing to the president about factors that have bogged down the American legal system and the administration for a long time. This film is their effort to showcase the increasing lack of transparency in the system that denies work visa to those trying to make a living in America by honest means.
The story revolves around an American firm that went bust because the key person behind the strategic decision of the firm was missing. The fact that many Americans associated with this firm lost their job due to this incident is one of the factors that make this a sensational case.
The key person in this role an Indian who was denied a L1B visa as a part of the latest trend of American immigration laws that have constantly been indulging in INA 221g denying more and more visas to foreign workers especially from India.
The film will be an eye opener to many Americans and those who are opposed to the idea of having foreigners in America on work visas thinking that this will affect the American employment situation.
The film is a fantastic effort in showcasing the ‘different’ side of things that are affecting the American economy, without substantial knowledge base on how this will actually impact the job situation in America and for natural American citizens.
The film highlights the dramatic increase in the denial of petitions for both L-1 (intra-company transfer) and H-1B (temporary work visa) categories, mostly to skilled Indians and researchers, compared to such requests from other countries. The film also shows how such denials will harm the overall competitiveness of US employers and in fact leave American companies with no choice but to keep more jobs outside the country.
The film takes the viewers through the painful process that those who have applied for a US visa have to go through and how it can have a devastating effect on their dreams, their hopes of sustaining a family and a shot at contributing to the American system too. The film focuses on the very break in the American freedom of being a country build by ambitious dreamers, who have made the country what it is today.
