Synopsis: Nat Dayan's family has been making and selling bakery products from their east London shop for 100 years. However, modern life is threatening to bring that to an end as his attorney son has no interest in the family business, his customers are aging and dying and a nearby grocery chain is encroaching on his business. So, where's the "feel good" in all of this? It begins when Nat's cleaning lady, a refugee from Darfur, needs to find a job for her teenaged son who, in an effort to provide a decent home for his mother, takes the job as cover for his real income-producing activity: drug dealer. Several themes are touched by the movie: youth and old age, Jews and Muslims, tradition and modernity.
Two-time Tony award-winning actor, Jonathan Pryce ("Evita," "Tomorrow Never Dies," "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Game of Thrones," etc.) stars and is joined by newcomer, Jerome Holder.
The Jewish Film Festival is sponsored by Congregation Beth Shalom and the MSU Diversity Awareness Office.
