Ocean of Pearls  Directed By: Sarab Neelam

This brilliant first feature from Sarab Neelam depicts the universal quest for identity. As a Sikh in North America, Dr. Amrit Singh is of two worlds, but belongs to neither. “To my father, the turban is an article of faith,” says Amrit. “To me, it means I better make damned sure I'm not late for my flight.”

When he is offered a prestigious position at a Detroit hospital, the young surgeon sees an opportunity to start fresh, only to discover that his appearance may threaten his success. What happens when our dreams seem to clash with our heritage? Perhaps it is through the collusion of the old ways and the new that we find out who we are.
