Jean-François Pouliot

Synopsis

When new immigrant Dr. Deepak Chopra discovers his Indian medical degree isn’t recognized in Canada, he starts driving a cab. One night, he heroically delivers a passenger (Natalie’s) baby in his backseat. Footage of the delivery accidentally goes viral. Now famous, Deepak gets nicknamed ‘Dr. Cabbie’ as passengers flock to his cab for treatment.

Deepak gives suicidal teen Zarah, antidepressants. She overdoses. Natalie’s jealous ex-boyfriend gets Deepak arrested. He now faces imprisonment, deportation and losing Natalie. Ironically, it’s selflessly helping others that’s got him into the fight of his life.
