DC Premiere

As the son of the Imam of a Brooklyn mosque, 11 year-old Daud has to juggle the high expectations of his father with his own feelings of isolation and his struggle to fit in in his own family, community and the wider world. An innocent act of good faith leads Daud to inadvertently befriend a group of Jewish boys who mistake him for a fellow classmate at their Orthodox school in the neighboring Jewish community. A genuine friendship grows between Daud and the boys. Unable to resist the joy of a camaraderie that he has never known before, David, as he is known to the Jewish boys, is drawn into a complicated dilemma inspired by the best of intentions.
