After fleeing war-torn Lebanon after the family's chocolate factory is bombed, Tareq Hadhad (Ayham Abou Ammar) and his Syrian family immigrate to the small town of Antigonish in Canada. Tareq’s father Issam (Hatem Ali) starts making chocolates again that are a hit at the local church, neighbourly Frank (Mark Camacho) rounds up local investors for a new factory, while local chocolatier Kelly (Alika Autran) feels threatened by the rivalry. While Issam’s “Peace By Chocolate” business continues to grow, Tareq is torn between his dream of becoming a doctor and his obligation to the family business. Based on a true story, Jonathan Keijser’s narrative feature debut encompasses the themes of immigration and the power of food to bring people together. This charming dramedy is a not-to-be-missed a crowd-pleaser.
