Notes:
The film relates to Tom Aguiar, an Anglo-Indian who worked in the telecommunications sector. Though Straight 8 is based on real life, with personal anecdotes and montages of private scenes, it's not a life story. Instead the film aims to capture the fragmented memory and imaginary realm of his projects.
