About the Movie
This is the story of Daud, an eleven-year-old Muslim boy growing up in Brooklyn. Concealing his Muslim identity, Daud inadvertently befriends a group of Jewish boys who, through a haphazard sequence of events, mistake him for being Jewish and accept him as one of their own. A genuine bond of friendship is formed between Daud and Yoav, on of the Jewish boys; Daud experiences a sense of freedom, joy, and camaraderie that he has never felt before, and for a brief time enjoys being a carefree Brooklyn boy. When the Jewish boys discover Daud's true identity, Daud's world is shattered and he is left alone, struggling to come to terms with his place in the world.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: First feature for director/co-scenarist Joel Fendelman is a middleweight drama that wears its modesty to its advantage, lending a potentially contrived tale a solid grounding in docu-style location capture and the protag's naive p.o.v.
Beautiful story with heart
A must see story for anyone who questions the ideas that separate us. The genuine performances and original story are a breath of fresh air to the standard fare coming out of hollywood these days
This was one of the sweetest movies! I thoroughly enjoyed the story and perspective on friendship that crosses boundaries of religion and "protocol". I'd recommend it to anyone!!
This movie captures the true meaning of friendship no matter what your race is. Give us our ball back!!
