Sometimes, to gain, you have to lose. Young doctor Max Lowe (Swayze), the hero of this film, who became a doctor (because his father was a doctor), played football (because his father played football), became a class president (because his father was a class president), " loses "at the operating table a little girl. It overwhelms the bitter cup of patience of his soul. He leaves for India, loses his passport and wallet, was robbed, removed and the gold medallion on a gold chain, the air ticket was taken on bail at the hotel. He seems to have lost everything. A peasant arrives in the same town with his wife, daughter and two sons, whose farm was taken for debts. In the cruel chaos of a foreign city, there is a doctor who has lost and is not yet aware that he has not lost, but dropped, and a small, proud man. Good people help him become a rickshaw. The doctor, of course, finds herself, having met a lonely woman who believes that her small clinic in a quarter populated by the poor is necessary. He returned to work, found himself, becoming part of the life of people close to him, because there are no strangers on this planet. Politicians and prejudices make us such, unwillingness to bare the heart and go forward, to understand. The doctor helps his new friends to fight against the mafia, who imposed tribute to the workers of the quarter. His life regains meaning. The ending of the tape is curious: “What you did not give to others, you lost” (Hasari Pal).
