The Unexpected Bar Mitzvah #GLCFF

Paul Douglas is a bright, passionate twelve-year-old Christian whose goal is be a missionary to the world, especially to the Jewish and Native American people. The rubber meets the road for his aspirations when a Jewish family moves in next door and Paul has the opportunity for hands on experience. As a result, he gets into trouble with his father for investigating the baptism of the
Holy Spirit, a doctrine their church strongly disputes.

Abraham Maslow is a twelve-year-old Jewish boy whose father instructs him how to combat the proselytizing of Christian missionaries. After a tough economic situation forces the Maslow family to relocate to an area in which no other Jewish people live, Abe’s father is faced with his biggest nightmare as Paul’s prayers lead to some unusual experiences for Abraham. The nsuing ideas from those experiences collide head on with Micah Maslow’s Conservative Jewish beliefs.

As the two boys get closer to each other, they drift further from their doting fathers. Both of them face hard decisions as their probe to find religious truth shakes the foundation of their family relationships. Abe’s new found interest in the Christian Savior threatens his coming of age ceremony, his Bar Mitzvah, an event both he and his father have long awaited.
