Midway through a gruelling Orthodox conversion, Daniel and his fiancée Katherine are eager to gain the blessing of his intimidatingly large and loud Iraqi Jewish family. At their annual Rosh Hashanah feast, Katherine’s natural elegance and ‘English English’ heritage immediately endears her to them, but it soon becomes apparent that beneath the warm and welcoming atmosphere, some are not ready as others to accept her.



Adam Baroukh spent his formative years working as a photographer and self-shooting short documentaries and in 2011 Adam co-founded Superplex Pictures as a platform from which to write, produce and direct his own work. Through Superplex he has directed hundreds of commercial films for some of the world's biggest brands and a number of award-winning short dramas.

Adam works both in visual art and cinematic traditions. In 2015 he was funded by the British Arts Council to create the performance film THE SILENT WILD at the Bronte Parsonage, and THE BRUSH AND THE SWORD - an audio-visual installation for the Shangri-La at the Shard. The same year, he produced his first written film ‘Just Desserts’, which played at numerous BAFTA and Oscar qualifying festivals internationally, featured at the 2015 BFI London Film Festival, won the Discovery Award at London Comedy Festival and Best Comedy at Isle of Man film festival.
