Are arranged marriages a thing of the past, or is there still a place for such things in modern society? A sweet comedy about two young women -- Rochelle, an Orthodox Jew, and Nasira, a Muslim, who meet as first year teachers in a public school in Brooklyn. Although they come from different cultures, they discover that they have much in common.
Both of them, for example, are going through the process of having marriages arranged by their families, and are uncomfortable with the idea. This leads to a wonderful friendship as they share each other's family lives. An interesting dilemma of cultural adaptation to new ideas in a new world.
