Ganesh, Boy Wonder

Feature Documentary, 2009 – 76 minutes

GANESH, BOY WONDER captures the remarkable story of a working class Indian couple who prayed to the god Ganesh to bless them with a boy, never dreaming that their son would actually look like his namesake, the elephant-headed deity. Years after giving up all hope of finding medical help, an accidental meeting with a reporter’s brother leads to a national television story resulting in a media sensation that draws the interest of India’s rich and powerful, and a Canadian plastic surgeon, changing their lives forever.
