Tired of the politics that constantly interfere with his main goal of healing the sick, an American surgeon heads for a humble health clinic located in the horrendous slums of Calcutta, India in hopes of rediscovering the ideals and selfless goals that led him to practice medicine years before. This inspirational drama chronicles his experiences there. The plot is based on a book by Dominique Lapierre.
