Ghanaian-American Sarah, a doctoral student at Columbia University, is weeks away from following her very married boyfriend to Ohio when her mother dies suddenly, leaving Sarah the owner of a small but beloved Christian bookstore in the Bronx. Aided by an only-in-New York ensemble of Eastern European neighbours, feisty African aunties and a no-nonsense ex-con co-worker, Sarah faces her new responsibilities while figuring out how to remain true to herself.

'As happens time and again in this quietly effective film, delving beneath the surface of things can sometimes reveal a little slice of heaven on Earth' - Pat Padua, Washington Post
