  • Feature
  • 1h 28m

The uneventful middle-class life of Lebanese sisters Houwayda and Joëlle spirals into turmoil after Houwayda announces that she is accompanying Pierre, her Québecker husband, on a sabbatical year in France. Joëlle will stop at nothing to keep her sister in Montréal, even if it means exploring the sticky side of baklava. With its humorous treatment of the culture clash of immigration, “The Sticky Side of Baklava” is a heart-warming film that seeks to bring people together by embracing our differences.
