In 2012, the film depicts a man ordering pizza and writing on a piece of paper while driving. Nice. Perhaps distracted driving is not as serious in Canada.
Leila is an immigrant of Iranian descent in Canada. Leila is taking a class in which she makes designer clothing. She helps make pizzas with her husband Ali at his shop Canadian Pizza now and then. At a party, she gets a job offer through her connections from class. Ali is happy for her success. Early on, her boss Sarah invites her for a drink at a lesbian bar. Leila and Sarah discuss their cultural differences.
Ali's business fortunes start to decline along with that of the local economy. Leila is doing well, but her boss is coming on to her. Ali fires two of his staff; Leila is at the pizza shop more often after work, but she's not happy with it. Ali is a hothead who does not suffer gladly racial lies and insults from Anglo Canadians. Leila gets more discouraged while Ali spirals downward.
Leila's boss renews her romantic approaches to Leila, who slowly gets more receptive. In the middle of all this, Leila finds that she is pregnant. She decides to terminate without mentioning this to Ali. Ali put the house on the market without mentioning this to Leila. These two choices were not good, possibly terminal, to the marriage. Leila leaves in a huff. She makes arrangements to live elsewhere, and Ali wonders where she is and what's going on. After meeting Ali at the office, Sarah dismisses him as too simple for Leila.
Will Leila go through with the termination? Will Ali and Leila get back together? Will Ali keep his business? Will Sarah get what she wants?

When GOD has blessed you with a singing voice, it don't matter what color you are. There are White R&B singers and there are BLACK COUNTRY singers. 🔥 2019 & Forever. James Ingram and MM with David Pack That's about 100 yrs of musical experience. Cool song.
Gino Vannelli deserves to be in the Rock and Roll hall of fame. He was one of the hottest tickets in the 70's. I'm still listening. Love Steve, never another voice so beautiful your irreplaceable. Your voice is just as beautiful today in 2019 Steve and love you. Steve was the truth. That dude could really sing. I miss the 80s so much, it seems like everything was cool, Friday night football games, school dances, kissing under the bleachers, McDonald's was good back then, some underage drinking and weed, DAMN I wish I could do it again, lol.
It's a beautiful song with a powerful message, of hearts and souls being united. 2018 still💯💖💗🖤💙💛💜💚. Great song, always was and still is. Currently have this as part of my Soul Magic playlist because, let's be honest, you can't get anymore soulful than this. Still gets me each and every time, with that killer hook that just builds.
