MISSION MUMBAI

Two friends, one deep alliance, the trip of a lifetime.

When aspiring photographer Dylan Moore is invited to join his best friend, Rohit Lal, on a family vacation to India, he jumps at the chance to escape his parents’ bitter fighting and go on an exciting journey just like his Lord of the Rings heroes, Frodo and Sam—except with less walking and lots of amazing food and photo ops. How hard can it be for a street- smart New Yorker to navigate India?

Turns out, really hard. Mumbai is nothing like New York City, as Dylan discovers in his daily encounters with intense heat, massive crowds, filthy streets, and strange customs. He loves it all, and it’s a great distraction from what’s happening at home, but he’s always one step away from disaster despite warnings from Rohit and his mom. And when Ro’s family problems threaten to cut the trip short, it seems like the two friends can’t agree on anything anymore. Will their separate goals pit them against each other, or can they set aside their differences in this epic quest for friendship and adventure?
