Synopsis: Desperate Endeavors follows RAM PATEL (Ismail Bashey), in his chase of the "American Dream". RAM arrives alone in New York City from Bombay in the year 1973 while his wife waits for the call to join him. Armed with a degree in accounting and obvious skills, he is nevertheless beset by financial struggles and the growing pressures to support his growing family, he jumps over hurdles of discrimination and prejudice and his own all-American addiction to borrowing money until he finally "plunges his finger into the dike" of his delusions and baseless optimism. With nothing left to lose, and hopelessly in debt, he is at last ready to find a remedy in the person of a spiritual advisor, the legendary "Dada Baghwan" (Bollywood star, Gulshan Grover). RAM learns to live a more balanced life and turns his fortunes around to success. Based on a true story. Also starring Michael Madsen, Robert Clohessy, and Samrat Chakrabarti.
