Harbhajan Singh, founder of Samra Produce, has been America's "king of okra.". The movie covers the stories of Harbhajan Singh who came to Southern California in 1985 as a trained agronomist with a master's degree in economics. He saw California as ideal for growing the kind of Indian specialties — okra, eggplant, bitter melon, beans — that he ate as a child. His success reflects a broader reality in the nation's produce market. As ethnic populations — and interest in ethnic food — grow across the country, so do the opportunities for entrepreneurs like Harbhajan Singh.
