The film, which has won multiple top awards at film festivals, chronicles the compelling, true story of Syrian refugees who have to start life over in a small Nova Scotia town. As the father struggles to adapt and restart his chocolate-making business after his factory was bombed, his son is conflicted between helping his family and pursuing his dream of medical school.
Afterwards, the film's director, Jonathan Keijser, was on hand to talk about what went into bringing this inspiring story to audiences world-wide.
As we left the theater, the audience got a surprise -- a Peace by Chocolate bar. It was a sweet ending to the film festival's inaugural season. We are already looking forward to the next one in January, 2024. And that's a wrap.
