| 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.
