2016 Houston Jewish Film Festival: Dough
Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) stars as Nat Dayan, an old Jewish baker whose business is faltering; widowed, with sons who have no interest in the business, and customers dying off, he strives to keep his business afloat. Enter Ayyash, a Muslim boy from Darfur who sells cannabis on the side to help his struggling mother make ends meet.
One day, Ayyash accidently drops some product in the dough; the challah starts flying off the shelves and the two form an unlikely friendship. Dough is a warmhearted and humorous story about overcoming prejudice and finding redemption in unexpected places. You’ll get a rise out of Dough.
