Following the tragedy of her oldest grandson, Hossam, Ehsam has traveled to New Jersey from Egypt to help heal her broken family. A year has passed since Hossam shot his girlfriend, Natalie, and then himself, and her family is having a memorial service for her. Shamed, Samir, a successful physician, and his remaining family face daily scorn and prejudice, challenging their Muslim roots. Against the pleas of his family, Samir is determined to not only attend the service, but to speak. The despair felt by his Muslim family surfaces through the powerful stories of its chief players.
