‘Food Path’ is directed by Jithu K Jayan and Ayyoob Kachery has crafted the story. The nine-minute long short movie narrates the story of a poor food delivery man who struggles to balance between the poverty, personal needs, and work commitments. The movie depicts how delivery agents turned saviours during the COVID lockdown.
One day, he comes across some unfortunate incidents while on duty to deliver food on his work routine. At the end, despite all his sincerity, he lands at the receiving end of harsh words. The closing makes us remember the proverb “The rich eat when they want, the poor when they can.”
