This deeply-moving drama stars Oscar nominee Richard Jenkins and tells the story of a recently widowed college professor, Walter, who finds a Syrian musician, Tarek, and his Senegalese girlfriend, Zainab, living in his New York apartment. An unlikely friendship develops between the three and he joins Tarek in a drumming circle. When immigration officers come after Tarek, his mother turns up to defend him and everything in Walter’s previously quiet life is turned upside down. A terrific film that looks at how one’s life can change through being open to new and challenging experiences.
