Storyline

Safa Habimana, is an immigrant in Britain who is struggling to make ends meet, with the hope that one day, she and her teenage son will reunite with her husband. On the other hand, her son Ayyash, a troubled young Muslim with lots of time in his hands, has no interest in anything except how to spend the time with his friends and make easy money. An occurrence caused by bad luck and even worse timing, will bring the Police on his doorstep forcing Safa to take drastic measures. So she sets up an appointment with Nat, a Jew baker for whom she works for asking him to take Ayyash as an apprentice. Beginnings are usually hard at first, but as time moves on, business flourish and customers rush in, a strong bond will develop between the two men, unbeknownst to them that problems are just around the corner...

Trivia

Dough's tagline "You don't have to be baked to make some Dough" (and poster layout) is a parody of Levy Rye's "You don't have to be Jewish to love Levy's real Jewish Rye" campaign from the '60s. See more »

Goofs

There is a sign in the bakery that says, "All our goods are baked on premises as yosan". Although the word "yosan" is supposed to be transliteration of a Hebrew word, it is still misspelled. The word is commonly spelled "yoshon", which in Jewish law refers to when certain types of grains are planted and take root in relation to the calendar year. See more »

Dough Rises to the Occasion
1 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dough rises to the occasion with sweetness, depth and delightful humor. With Jonathan Pryce and Jerome Holder giving us textured and nuanced portrayals of growing trust, and appreciation, they also demonstrate how we can successfully meet "the other" with care and compassion. Dough provides us will all the ingredients as to how the simple act of being human transforms every bite we take from this morsel of life we get. While the film's premise offers many "highlights" the cohesive quality of the film, the honest feelings generated and the love that emerges, is not only touching, it's enlivening. This film is far more than an ethnic sampling, it's most importantly how we can move beyond our prejudice and bias and find our humanity. John Goldschmidt's direction continually points us toward the goodness of who we are, and Pryce and Holder masterfully deliver the goods. This was a wonderful and uplifting film, like eating a piece of chocolate chip rugelach without any of the guilt.
