In a pinch, Nat Dyan reluctantly enlists the help of teenager Ayyash, a Muslim refugee from Darfur to assist him in his ailing bakery. When Ayyash one day accidentally drops his cannabis stash into the dough, the challah starts flying off the shelf. DOUGH is a warmhearted and gently humorous story about overcoming prejudice and finding redemption in unexpected places.
