A heartwarming comedy about an interfaith, intergenerational friendship. Nat (Jonathan Pryce, Game of Thrones) is determined to keep his struggling bakery open and hires his cleaning lady’s son, Ayyash, as a new apprentice. But Ayyash has fallen into some illegal activity and now finds himself in the kosher bakery with a bag full of marijuana. When he accidently drops some of the marijuana into a batch of challah dough, unknowing customers are thrilled and Nat’s bakery sales rise – but so does the hilarious dilemma for Ayyash and Nat.
