The following is from the description on the Village East Cinema page:

In this charming romantic comedy, an Indian woman studying in Prague and a lonely New Yorker begin an unconventional correspondence through video letters — two strangers searching for human connection in a hyper–connected world. When their relationship deepens, they must decide whether or not to meet face to face. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the 2013 Slamdance Film Festival, HANK AND ASHA is a film about identity, longing, and the irresistible appeal of entertaining life's what-ifs.
