Few children have the pressure that 12-year-old Abe (Noah Schnapp from Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things) feels as the son of an Israeli mother and Palestinian father. Raised in a secular household in New York, Abe must contend with both sets of grandparents, insisting he choose between being Jewish or Muslim. As Abe’s passion for food and cooking enable him to escape from escalating family tensions, he plans a Thanksgiving feast to celebrate his diverse heritage and tries to unify his family.
Family friendly – recommended for ages 12 and up
