Culture is a large attribute of who we are. We are apart of it wherever we go, even when we immigrate to America. The motivation for the above documentary was my want to share a parent's story of coming from Bangladesh to America. The father's inspiring tale is not just a story, but his life as well as a main influence on his own children. The problems reflected are real situations for the many who still live in Bangladesh along along with the complexities of being a young adult while living in the United States. Unexpectedly, the young ladies' interviews have provided a sense of culture identity that wasn't original planned for the main plot of the video but was quite beneficial. The following interviews of family, friends, and a University of Colorado Denver professor demonstrate the many aspects of life in Bangladesh, whether they it be historical or cultural influences. Interviews were all taken during the month of November 2011. Numerous online resources were also used to develop the noted documentary such as online government databases.

It was lovely to learn about other people's stories and experiences and surprisingly, much contrast can be found between each and every story. However, limitations of the film include lack of a variety of interviewers and it would had been insightful to hear and document not just of Bangladeshis from Colorado but along the US and perhaps even to go so far as Bangladeshis in other countries besides the homeland.
