Mo Najjar straddles the line between two cultures, three languages and a ton of bullshit as a Palestinian refugee constantly living one step away from asylum on the path to U.S. citizenship.

Laughing the pain away, Mo learns to adapt to his new world though getting ahead in life comes with several setbacks.
