Palestinian-American brothers Ali (Charles Daniel Sandoval) and Mustafa (Bronson Picket) take different approaches to dealing with the conflict between traditional values, deep-seated prejudices, and daily life in the United States. Ali finds work as a home attendant to the terminally ill, wheelchair-bound Yitzhak (Matt Conley). However, he is reluctant to tell anyone in his neighborhood that he is working for a Jew. Meanwhile, law-school graduate Mustafa secretly dates a blond American as his father, Hassam (Hany Kamal), arranges a marriage for him to a native Palestinian woman. Ali's friend Saddam (Ghazi Albuliwi) renames himself Tito and tries to convince people that he's Puerto Rican, while another one of Ali's friends, Mohammed (Anil Kumar), becomes more serious about his Islamic faith when his uncle is killed by Israeli soldier while fighting along West Bank. Tensions rise in the neighborhood as fighting in the Middle East escalates between Palestinians and Jews.
