In this offbeat, zany story, Shulman, a Georgia physician who wrote and produced the film Doc Hollywood , draws on his own experience with Heart to Heart, a program he helped found to provide cardiac surgery in the U.S. for Third-World children. Multicultural understanding doesn't come easy to Bud Payne, an Atlanta doctor, when a Maasai girl from Kenya arrives for emergency heart surgery--accompanied by her entire tribe, who camp out in mud huts in the altruistic doctor's suburban backyard.
