The Last Day Synopsis

In the winter of 1990, fearing religious persecution due to the eruption of armed insurgency, about four hundred thousand Kashmiri Pandits were forced to flee their homes in Kashmir, India. Several thousand homeless families sought shelter in puny canvas tents set up in migrant camps in the Jammu province. They lived in wretched conditions for two decades, hoping to return to their homeland someday. In exile, many perished and those who survived have now been rehabilitated. The last camp was demolished in 2011.

The Last Day makes use of an excellent film score to reflect the plight of migrant refugees. Set in 1990 Kashmir, a family is forced to live and care for their dying father in a refugee camp. The film utilizes colored scenes to display the family's dreams of once again living in their homeland. While, black and white scenes display their current plight. The difference underscores the bleak reality of their situation. Coupled with average acting, The Last Day succeeds just enough to shaken viewers' perception of migrant refugees.
