When Rochel and Nasira -- an Orthodox Jew and a Muslim, respectively -- meet as new teachers at a Brooklyn school, co-workers and students expect friction.

- It's a lesson on cultural diversity that isn't dripping with annoying political correctness,
- It's a respectful view of faith issues, and
- It's two beautiful pictures of family life.
