Bugaboo: Life and Times in the Silicon Valley

1999 NR

A group of Indian engineers, living a culturally insular existence in Silicon Valley, defy the even flow of their existence by introducing "random disturbances" into their lives. These deviations from normal routine punctuate the film until they finally lead to a "grand deviance," unthinkable for sober, law-abiding engineers from India. At the end of the film, they discover simple solutions to seemingly complex problems in their cocooned lives.
