As the son of the Imam of the local Brooklyn mosque, young Daud has to juggle the high expectations of his father and his feelings of isolation and difference ­ even from his peers in the Muslim community. Through an innocent act of good faith, he inadvertently befriends a group of Jewish boys who mistake him for a fellow classmate at their Orthodox school. A genuine friendship grows between Daud and one of the Jewish boys. Unable to resist the joy of a camaraderie that he has never felt before, David, as he is known, is drawn into a complicated dilemma inspired by youthful deceit and the best of intentions. Winner of the Ecumenical Prize at the Montreal World Film Festival 2011. This screening is followed by a panel discussion hosted by West of Scotland Racial Equality Council. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth Film Festival.
