‘Going Away’ is a 40-minute film about an Anglo-Indian family of a brother, sister and her daughter, and their uncle, set in an old bungalow in St. Thomas Mount, Chennai, India.

The sister is in her 40s, her daughter is about 10 and her brother in his mid-20s; their uncle is a 70-year-old retired railway driver. A happy family, day-to-day life is simple and no one longs for greener pastures… or do they?

One day a letter arrives that changes all their lives… out of the blue? Maybe not. How does the family cope with change and separation, who will make the decision to leave or stay and what binds them together may be shattered by the tyranny of distance.

How has this come about and who is responsible; will they be forgiven?

“For the first time, members of the Anglo-Indian community in India have got together to provide a glimpse into their lives through a short film.”
The New Indian Express

“MacLure explores aspects of family togetherness, love, emotions and nostalgia in this 40-minute English film Going Away. The film is about the aspirations of the youth who still want to fly to distant shores, with nary a thought for the feelings of the family members.”
The Hindu
