Storyline

Sacrifice tells the struggles of an immigrant Guyanese family living in Queens, NY. The parents and children struggle to adapt to American culture while still maintaining their Guyanese roots. Ammirita Singh, an aspiring dancer, falls in love with her older brothers' best friend, Shawn Jagdeo. Shawn and Ammirita keep their love secret because Ammi's family would not approve. Her older brother, Ramjit Singh, is a college dropout who lost the love of his life and was never able to recover. He turns to drinking as a solution to his problems. Their parents, Jai and Indra Singh, barely speak to each other and when they do it usually ends in a fight. With all of their problems, they come to realize that in this world family is all you have. Other people come and go, but family is there for life. Sacrifices are made for tradition, for love, and above all else, for family. Written by Frankie Sooknanan

"Sacrifice" - We all make a sacrifice or two.
15 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a screening and I did not know what to expect. I know the director and some of the actors in the film and it speaks the truth about a typical Guyanese-American family struggling with the different times. And adjusting to new customs; ways, and life itself. For me I am a Guyanese-American and I see these things in everyday life; but to see it on a screen and film it certainly opens your eyes. To know that this is a society which wants to fit in or needs to fit in in order to be accepted is ruthless. The film basically is about Guyanese parents with two children- The son(who is the oldest) doesn't know what to make of his life, The daughter(who is a teenager) follows the times and grows up to fast before her time, the parents struggle with every word they do not say to each other and work hard for there kids. Check out this movie if you want to basically see what goes on in New York West Indian family.
