Widowed and down on his luck, Nat Dayan is desperate to save his bakery in London’s East End. His customers are dying off, his sons have no interest in keeping the family business afloat, and hostile businessman Sam has his own greedy plans for the property. In a pinch, Nat reluctantly enlists the help of teenager Ayyash, a refugee from Darfur. The Muslim boy assists with the bakery’s daily chores while selling cannabis on the side to help his struggling mother make ends meet. One day, when Ayyash accidently drops his stash into the dough, the challah starts flying off the shelf, and an unlikely friendship forms between the old Jewish baker and his young apprentice.
