"A masterpiece strengthening identity issues...truly inspiring. A MUST SEE!"
          - Tushar Unadkat, Mukta Advertising, Toronto

"...your movie got to me...... conflicts within discrimination, family, romantic love, wealth, ethics, morality, and the need for acceptance is portrayed with power and drama....How much have any of us given away of our choices, our freedom, our passions, ourselves in compromise and without even knowing it, without questioning it.....Thanks for illuminating that and also that an individual does have a choice and that there are values only determined within oneself.
