Man Push Cart is an independent drama that features one man's struggle to make a life in a new country. Ahmad (Ahmad Razvi) is a Pakistani immigrant living in New York City. He makes a living by selling coffee and bagels out of a cart that he pushes around the city. It soon becomes clear that Ahmad is not happy with his life. This is mainly due to the fact that his wife passed away, and he is estranged from his son, Sajjad (Hassan Razvi). However, it seems like his life may be taking a turn for the better when he is approached by a businessman with the opportunity of a lifetime. He also becomes happier when he begins to spend time with a Spanish woman named Noemi (Leticia Dolera). But his happiness may be short-lived when a tragic event occurs, one that he may never recover from. Man Push Cart was nominated for three Independent Spirit Awards.

    An example of spare, slice-of-life indie cinema at its most unpretentious, Man Push Cart adeptly and subtly layers facts about the protag's history and character into his story.
