The Valley is the story of an immigrant entrepreneur Neal Kumar and his family, who live in the technologically driven culture that is silicon valley. His affluent life appears idyllic from the exterior, however, when his daughter Maya tragically commits suicide, the fractured nature of his interior life becomes apparent to himself and those around him. At the outset, Neal unveils his latest technology Augur from his company Virtually You, which emphasizes how technology enhances human connectedness. Sometime later, he drives to a cliff and pulls out a gun. He remembers the events of the past year, when his daughter has committed suicide. Afterwards, the family is devastated and does not understand the cause of the tragedy. Neal’s quest to find out the truth propels him on an increasingly frantic journey that brings him to the brink of disaster.
