The Algebra of Freedom
By Raman Mundair
A taut political drama that asks questions about identity, faith and compassion in a society waging a war against terror.
• Tony, a policeman, wishes he could turn the clock back.
• Jack knows that what’s done is done.
• Parvez, a young Asian man, can’t believe that Sara is back from beyond, and this time she seems to have all the answers. How do we live today?
