Flying on One Engine

Directed by Joshua Z Weinstein | |

Hello

Synopsis

Wheelchair bound, without a larynx, and diagnosed with a life-threatening aortic aneurysm, Dr Sharadkumar Dicksheet now lives only (and barely) so he can travel to India to perform free operations. In marathon-like surgery sessions, he treats up to 700 children with cleft lips and other deformities. Although Dicksheet survives on social security while living in his Brooklyn apartment, his life is drastically different in India, where the eight-time Nobel Prize nominee is treated like a living god. Flying on One Engine shows how this quirky, funny and sometimes difficult character overcomes his own ailments by curing others.
