As a Sikh man with a full beard and turban, AMRIT SINGH is often the target of racial profiling. But when he sees his dreams of becoming Chief of Surgery at a state-of-the-art transplant center dwindle because of his appearance, Amrit goes against a tradition he's maintained his whole life and cuts his hair. Hiding this decision from his girlfriend and family in Toronto is only the start of a series of compromises Amrit finds himself making as he deals with hospital politics and health care injustices. When his compromises result in the death of a patient, Amrit begins to reexamine the value of the religious traditions he'd turned his back on. Written by
A mind-boggling, mind-blowing, and mind juggling film
It has been a long time since I've seen a movie that was so remarkable to watch. Ocean of Pearls encompasses you in a world of hardships, hopes, and, dreams. This film makes you feel connected to the characters in the movie even though the circumstances between the audience and the characters are vastly different. It's a simple story really, yet has an eternal message. The leading role, Amrit Singh-a Sikh- who embarked on a journey when he is offered the job of his dreams at a new organ transplant facility in Detroit. To conform, Amrit decides cut of his beloved hair to make and everlasting impression upon his board of directors. The aftermath is only more interesting, how far a man would go to fulfill his hopes and dreams? Ocean of Pearls paints a vivid picture of today's world consent vs. denial. If you ever have the chance to go see it I highly recommend because it was so beautifully done.
