City of Joy

In the best performance of his career, Swayze stars as Max Lowe, a disillusioned surgeon who travels to India after a young patient dies on the operating table. But Lowe's determination to quit medicine is challenged when he meets a committed British nurse who runs a free clinic in Calcutta's most dangerous neighborhood. And when her clinic - and the livelihood of her neighbors - is threatened by the brutal local "godfather", Max teaches the impoverished Indians the strength of their own unity.
  • Rated PG13 for scenes of brief strong violence.
