Synopsis

Finding one's identity is a challenge everyone faces, but few have the pressure that 12-year-old Abe feels as the son of an Israeli mother and Palestinian father. Thankfully, Abe has a passion for food that allows him some escape from the escalating family tensions. This coming-of-age tale demonstrates the power of food and love to overcome prejudices, while illuminating the challenges surrounding one of the longest-running conflicts on our planet.
