Storyline

Behind the bulletproof glass works Sami, a young Arab-Amercan who believes his family's Detroit gas station will give him a chance to see his girl Naj, away from the pressures of their family and friends, while his cousin Mike is sure the station holds the key to an empire built on rolling papers and fake perfume.

A fantastic new voice in film
10 August 2007 | by silvervelvet1See all my reviews

Director Rola Nashef brings a unique voice to indie cinema with this fantastic story about the lives that revolve around the family gas station.

It's a serious story - Will Mike (the manager) use the family gas station as a springboard to upward mobility? And will Sami get a visit from his sweetheart Naj?

But "Detroit Unleaded" has its comedic moments too - Some of the customers deliver hilarious one-liners that come straight out of the heart of Detroit in the middle of the night.

There's a reason why this film is winning awards at festivals everywhere. "Detroit Unleaded" is a terrific, fun film, and an important new voice in cinema.
