Caught between the cultures of contemporary Detroit and traditional Arab-America, Sami works behind the bulletproof glass of a 24-hour gas station with his cousin Mike. Inside this unique East-side neighborhood, the once university-bound Sami is forced to put his dreams aside and resign himself to a world composed of junk food, overpriced Tigers baseball memorabilia, and cheap, long-distance phone cards. And then the beautiful Naj walks in.
An ambitious Lebanese-American youth is forced to take over his family’s gas station after his father’s death, in this spirited and often hilarious coming-of-age tale from first-time feature director Rola Nashef.
