When Rochel (Zoe Lister Jones) and Nasira (Francis Benhamou) — an Orthodox Jew and a Muslim, respectively — meet as new teachers at a Brooklyn school, co-workers and students expect friction. But the women discover they have a shared expectation of entering into arranged marriages. As they experience tension between their traditional cultures and life in contemporary America, Rochel and Nasira form a special bond.
We the People is sponsored by The Sacred Conversation on Race and Diversity Planning Committee, an interfaith project of Seekers Church and Covenant Christian Community.
