    • Synopsis
    • The film focuses on the life of a Detroit high-school senior, Bílal, and his family’s long-owned taxi stand. “The Stand,” as they call it, has been the source of all activity and income for the family for the last sixty years, and it seems as though Bílal is about to carry the torch. However, after secretly submitting a college application and taking up ice carving in order to win a scholarship, he is forced to decide whether he will continue working at the Stand–the only life he’s ever known–or take a chance at social mobility. The film is based on a true story and deals with issues of education, religion, community values, and social prosperity.
