Old legacies and fresh starts face off in this inspirational true story. After the bombing of his father’s chocolate factory in Syria, Tareq Hadhad (Ayham Abou Ammar) moves to Antigonish, Nova Scotia, as a refugee. Tareq, determined not to let his struggles undermine his dreams, wants to pursue a career as a doctor. His father, Issam (Syrian actor and filmmaker Hatem Ali in his final role), hopes he will focus on bringing the family’s chocolate-making business to Canada. Director Jonathan Keijser finds just the right blend of humour and heart to bring the Hadhad’s bittersweet story to the big screen.
