Description

A twelve-year-old Brooklyn boy (Noah Schnapp of Stranger Things), with a passion for cooking, decides to create a meal that will unite his conflicted family. The son of an Israeli mother and a Palestinian father, Abe dreams of a harmonious menu to calm the historic clashes of his grandparents. On a quest through the streets of Brooklyn, Abe gleans inspiration from the city's endless mixing of diverse flavors. Finding refuge in a professional kitchen, Abe pays his dues taking out the trash and dishwashing. Brazilian chef Chico (Seu Jorge) and his crew share culinary skills, ethics, and a philosophical approach to food with a fusion of South American, Jamaican, and NYC influences. Back at home, when his half Jewish/half Muslim family sees religious rite of passage as the next battleground, can this young chef find the right ingredients to bring peace to the family table?

Recommended for age 11+
