Talent is not essential — just the presence of a white face adds glamour and status to a movie or event. Following casting agents and foreigners, this documentary explores race and stereotypes while illuminating a world where Europeans migrate East for work. The story centres around Sasha, who left Russia with his mother and sister in the hope of making it as an actor. He needs to support the household so when acting gigs run dry, Sasha needs to reassess his easy but limited career prospects in India.
