Description

Padhman is a young Indian doctor who arrives in Ireland from an extremely wealthy and westernized medical family in Madras. When he joins the staff of a Dublin hospital as a junior houseman to take his Fellowship exam, he finds he is just another 'foreign doctor'. Slowly and unconsciously, Padhman recreates the kind of lifestyle he is accustomed to in Madras, while at the same time getting in deep waters when he falls in love with the Professor's daughter.
