Here we have an immigrant family of two, mother and son, from the West Bank, and their emigration to and adjustment to life in the American medwest. I found the lead character, the mother, Mouna, absolutely loveable, down to earth lady, with no agendas other than making a living for her 16 year old son, Fadi. Problems ensue, of course. But Mouna persists against awful odds, hurts, disappointments, racism and having to work far below her expertise in her homeland. All turns out well in the end. I absolutely loved this movie. It is a keeper on DVD.
