Synopsis

Sanllorente is a young journalist with a comfortable, successful career in Barcelona. One day, a travel agency persuades him to take his vacation in India. Jaume is shaken by that first voyage, especially by the heinous poverty he saw in the streets. He was never quite the same man after that. In Bombay Smiles. The trip that changed my destiny Jaume shows us, through his delicate storytelling and a loving glance, the realities of a country with massive contrasts, and sets out to teach us how to be happier by looking after our fellow human being. Bombay Smiles is a story of solitude and community, danger and justice, setbacks and breakthroughs.
