Vancouver, BC: Two boys, Arya (Kayvon Kelly) and Jacob (Joel Bernbaum) growing up in Saskatoon, meet at fifteen and become close friends; as close as brothers. Arya's family are Iranian Muslims. Jacob's family is Jewish. Neither boy is devout, and the family's religious differences play no part in affecting their friendship. At times of stress such as parental illness, they are there for each other.
