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 else except on how to spend the time with his friends and make some easy money. And then, by a bit of bad luck and bad timing, the Police will come on Ayyash's doorstep, forcing the desperate Safa to take drastic measures. Without delay, she will set up an appointment with Nat, a Jew baker for whom she works for, asking him to take her son as an apprentice. Naturally, beginnings are usually hard at first, but as time moves on, Nat's business will start flourishing, while a strong bond will develop between the two men. However, unbeknownst to them, problems are just around the corner. Written by Nick Riganas

Goofs

At the beginning of the film, Ayyash asks his friends why he'd be walking around with no pants on. In the UK, "pants" refers to what Americans call "underwear." While many Americanisms and word meanings have traveled to the UK, "pants" has not yet changed meaning to refer to trousers. See more »

Endearing and heartfelt movie that has a great meaning
4 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

DOUGH is a 'dramedy' with a big heart, dealing with the tension between Jews and Muslims, who despite their cultural differences have many shared values. It involves a young Muslim and the unlikely friendship he develops with an older Jewish baker. The story is about how the small baker is fighting a loosing battle for survival against a corporate giant and how the young boy tries to help him save the bakery. David versus Goliath. It has laugh out loud lines that all ages will find humorous. Jonathan Pryce(the baker) and Jerome Holder(the boy) are excellent and their chemistry is so believable you will find yourself cheering them on. I saw it at The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival and LOVED IT!
