    • Synopsis
    • After the death of his father, Hani and his mother discover they are in debt
      and are no longer capable of maintaining their upper middle class lifestyle.
      To cut costs, he agrees to be relocated from his expensive private school to a
      run-down government school populated by delinquents. When he is mistaken
      for a Muslim, Hani is too terried to admit otherwise and tries to use it as
      an opportunity to t in. Ultimately, he learns that pretending to be someone
      else is no guarantee against prejudice and abuse, and that one can only earn
      respect by having the courage to stand up for who they are.
