Hanif is a Muslim casket maker and ritual body washer in Newark NJ. He mentors two kids – Furguan, a confident 12-year-old who comes from a rough home, and Naz, a 17-year-old who has been fighting through his own struggles as a young black man growing up in Newark. Hardship comes when Furguan’s home life becomes more turbulent and Naz gets caught up in a serious arrest. Hanif fears he has failed as a mentor and begins to fall into a downward spiral.
During their darkest moments, they take what they’ve learned from each other to pull through. And through faith, brotherhood and redemption, they find their purpose.
