    This is the inspiring and remarkable story of Dr Sanduk Ruit, an extraordinary surgeon who is changing the lives of worlds' poorest people one pair of eyes at a time. He is the man of whom Fred Hollows said, 'If I've done one thing in life I'm proud of, it's launching Ruit into the world'.

    It is the story of a boy from the lowest tiers of a rigid caste system who grew up in a tiny, remote village in the Himalayas to become one of the most respected ophthalmologists in the world. It is the story of a young doctor who became Fred Hollows' medical soul mate and who chose to defy the world's medical establishment and the lure of riches to make the world a better place.

    'A true insight into my remarkable friend Dr Sanduk Ruit.' - Gabi Hollows

    'I've known Dr Sanduk Ruit for over thirty years. He is one of our greatest living eye surgeons and humanitarians. I'm a huge fan. Watching him give the gift of sight is like watching someone give a second life to some of the poorest people on the planet.' - Richard Gere.

    'A God-like figure who looks after the blind. He reminds me of Don Bradman. They both have a God-given talent and skill that they both have harnessed in a highly disciplined way.' - Ray Martin

    'One of the greatest people I've ever met.' - Joel Edgerton.
