B-flat_Mariana Youssef_03 Amar left India 40 years ago, leaving all and everyone behind. While driving a taxi in New York, he gets the notice that an old friend is just about to die. The news takes him back to the past and as he arrives in India, heading to his hometown ,Bhor, Amar bumps into Rajan and they take the same bus. Amar needs to deliver a very beautiful box he’s carrying on his hands. Rajan needs to learn how to play only one note with his golden tuba he’s carrying with him. Amar is just about to lose his best friend, Kamal. Rajan is looking desperately for his best friend, an alligator. The bus that takes them back home breaks down. They have a long way to go. It’s at this moment that we find out the huge distance between those two men. One, that carries a secret and the other, the hope. One box, one tuba and a long way. A silence that is, finally, awakened by a musical note.
