This quirky docu-drama tells the real life story of Aref Kabbara, a Lebanese American immigrant and father of two, who left his war ridden country for America, but only to find himself settling into a suburban life of solitude and daily rituals. However, one day, Aref's kids decide to pay him a visit that totally disrupts his carefully planned life, and Aref finds himself trying, hopelessly to regain control.
This film provides a satirical glimpse into the life of an immigrant who, like many others, had to make sacrifices to provide for his children a better life, even if that meant surrendering his own life to the chains of routine.

The dad is awesome... he's so charming. It's a testament to all that dad's do for their kids. It's not sappy so I liked that.
It is half drama and half comedy so it kept me interested and made me laugh. I think immigrants to America would really like this kind of film.
I would definitely recommend this movie.
