In The Sikhs are Coming!, Jack Singh, a struggling screenwriter, fills his notebook with observations and scene sketches as he attempts to write a first draft script on the Komagata Maru incident for Rupa Gosavi, an award-winning Indo-Ugandan-Canadian producer. When Rupa tries to get Jack to write a terrorist story instead of a pioneer story he realizes Rupa is not working alone and that her Anglo-European-Canadian financiers have a hidden agenda of retelling an old lie in a new way with a new medium. This is both one writer’s journey and an eye-opener for anyone working in the film industry. Part diary, part script, Singh unveils how he slowly discovered the story of the Komagata Maru and its significance to Canadians of East Indian ancestry. Follow Singh as he tries to consolidate two very different visions of the story in a desperate attempt to have his first feature film produced without compromising his roots or vilifying his ancestors.
