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
I saw "Ocean of Pearls" at the Sikh film festival 2008 in NYC 2008. This movie is inspirational on so many levels. The complexities of life and choices are portrayed in very impressive manner. The hard work and dedication of all involved in the creation of this work of art are evident to anyone who watches it.Watching this movie really forces you to evaluate your own conscience and ask yourself questions about who you are and who you want to be as a human being. You will find yourself thinking about things that you might have not ever thought about before. A great movie to invest a couple of hours of your time. I know this movie will be enjoyed by any who see it.
