She's a Kurdish Muslim refugee with a tragic past and an ancient culture. Advised by his cool French Cameraman, David's amour fou attempts to woo Layla eventually succeed. But her family is dead against, as is his. Layla faces deportation. She must make a crucial life decision: Jewish David or Muslim Dr. Ahmad? Will David and Layla follow their hearts? Burdened by their families' religious prejudices, who will convert? Will their love and passion for life (and spice!) oblige their families to rise above their heritage of hate and war?
