Synopsis

The Immigrant Stargazer by T M Patel

The Immigrant: Stargazer starts in a town outside of Johannesburg, South Africa. It starts in the eighties, where apartheid still exists. Saesha a young girl grows up with her siblings in a segregated area during Apartheid, an area where Indians live. The early residents of her town were forcibly removed from another area, and the town where Saesha lives is the only place where Indians can live legally. Saesha is Hindu, still six or seven years old. She does not know what Apartheid is. She faces a number of things while growing up; she struggles with growing up in the Hindu culture during Apartheid, where Indians are classified as Black. Saesha wants to be free; to dream just isn't enough; she wants to live her dreams. Saesha is living in the world of apartheid, but within that world is another world. She struggles as an Indian girl growing up in a western world. Nothing seems to make sense to her and her existence during her darkest moments. The question is who will she become? How will she get there? Is it written in the stars or is it in her...?
