HALF-HOUR COMEDY July/August transports you back to the 90s, through the eyes of Prashanth “Shawn” Ruban, a Tamil immigrant who is walking a teenage tightrope of staying true to his family, while building a new life in Canada. This half hour comedy of culture clashes follows the Ruban family and Shawn's “chosen” fam, a tight trio of artistic underdogs,as they create mixtapes and videos to give their community a voice, while keeping their dreams in focus. It’s a story about a social housing community, two summer months, two different paths and of course... two turntables and a microphone.
