About the film:
A mother’s conviction, passion and devotion to help achieve her daughter’s aspiration, is seen through the journey of a pair of earrings (legacy), as they land in the village of New Ishwariya, Gujarat and travel across oceans and through time to Toronto, Canada. This story begins with asking the viewer the worth of this pair of earrings. The financial worth is eventually shared however, the true worth is only realized, perhaps for the first time, through this documentary, narration and storytelling. mother’s conviction, passion and devotion to help achieve her daughter’s aspiration, is seen through the journey of a pair of earrings (legacy), as they land in the village of New Ishwariya, Gujarat and travel across oceans and through time to Toronto, Canada.
