Definition Please

Directed by Sujata Day

Definition Please opens on the 2005 Scribbs National Spelling Bee. Our young lead character, Monica Chowdry, annihilates the competition to win the coveted trophy. We fast forward 15 years later to a sleepy Pennsylvania suburb, where life hasn’t quite panned out for the now twenty-something Monica. She cares for her ailing mother, still lives at home, and has an unusual penchant for “seeing” words to define strangers. When Monica’s brother Sonny returns home to help with family obligations, tensions arise and secrets are revealed. Can the bickering siblings set aside their differences to help mom prepare for the anniversary of their dad’s death? Or will years of bottled up emotions tear this close knit family apart?

The film is available in the following states: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Delaware from 11/5-11/15
