In M for Minority, Jassleena Kaur, a struggling novelist attempts to adapt her novel on the Komagata Maru into a script for a producer more interested in grants than the actual story. When the producer tries to get Jasleena to write a 'revolutionary' story (a terrorist story)instead of a pioneer story she realizes the producer is not working alone and that his European-Canadian connections have a hidden agenda of retelling an old lie in a new way. This is both one writer’s journey and an eye-opener for anyone working in the Canadian film industry so heavily dependent on grants. Follow Kaur as she tries to consolidate two very different visions of the story of the Komagata Maru in a desperate attempt to have her first feature film produced without compromising her roots or vilifying her ancestors.
