Nat is an old Jewish baker who reluctantly hires Ayyash, a young Muslim refugee from Darfur, to help out his failing bakery. Ayyash, who sells cannabis on the side to help his struggling mother, drops his stash into Nat’s dough. Suddenly, the customers can’t get enough of his challah, and Nat discovers that his dwindling shop has customers lining up around the block. It’s a change of fortune that’s noticed by local business rivals and drug lords alike, none of whom are happy with Nat’s success.

This heartwarming comedy about an unlikely friendship received a standing ovation at its festival screenings in the US. Its all-star cast includes Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones), Philip Davies (Silk), Ian Hart (Harry Potter) and Pauline Collins (Bleak House).
