  • Movie summary: Abe is a 12-year-old boy with an Israeli mother and Palestinian father, who tries to bring about peace and reconciliation in his tumultuous Brooklyn family. His love of cooking is the means with which he attempts to bring his family together, although they've never had a meal that didn't end in a fight.
