In 1999, Pardeep Singh was the Ontario Amateur Boxing flyweight champion, opening up an opportunity for him to possibly go to the 2000 Olympics. However, a rule mandating all competitors needed to trim their beards held Pardeep Singh back, due to his adherence of the Sikh faith, which includes keeping kes (unshorn hair). This resulted in a series of events that changed the sport of boxing forever.
Now, the story is set for the cinemas across North America in a feature film starring Hollywood legend Mickey Rourke, Janel Parrish from Pretty Little Liars, and hot young acting talent Prem Singh. The film is viewed as a breakthrough moment for the worldwide Sikh community as the first Western-made portrayal of a modern story centred on Sikh religious beliefs in the sporting world.
