About the Film
Sikhs in Northern California celebrate special events with Giddha and Bhangra, songs and dances from their native land, Punjab, India. The film shows women in their workplaces in America and in a harvest festival performance. The Punjabi narrator describes the meaning of several songs. Rehearsals and performances by children and teenagers show how the dances are evolving to reflect the influence of contemporary cinema. Wedding rituals, a Sunday religious service, and women relating their feelings about living in America give a glimpse of hearts shared between India and California.
