In this poignant indie drama, Ashes (Ajay Naidu, of Office Space, The Wrestler, SubUrbia) is a young Indian-American man struggling to support himself and his mentally-ill older brother in the inner city of New York. When Ashes becomes friendly with cadre of small-time Indian gangsters, they offer him an easy road to wealth—an opportunity he pursues with vigor to keep his family afloat. But their lives begin to quickly unravel as his brother's health continues to decline, and Ashes embarks on a steady path towards hardcore crime. But despite the harsh reality of life on the unforgiving city streets, Ashes’ traditional values urge him to reconsider his criminal ways and choose a better path. Also co-written and directed by Naidu, ASHES co-stars Piper Perabo (TV's Covert Affairs, Coyote Ugly, The Prestige), Heather Burns (HBO's Bored to Death, Miss Congeniality, You've Got Mail), and Faran Tahir (Star Trek, Iron Man, Charlie Wilson’s War).
