Genetically handicapped from birth, Mukesh Shukla shares his personal journey about his struggle through life, his bitter relationship with his father, and his inner desire to want to do more than just continue his family business, working as a cobbler.
With 4 cast, 9 crewmembers and several extras, A Letter From My Father was shot in 10 locations within the city of Jaipur in 3 days. Originally intended for a 3-minute short film competition, the filmmakers were left with more than enough footage to edit a 10-minute version of the film. The film music and sound was recorded and produced in a professional studio in Jaipur.
