You see a lemon ...they see a Miracle! Moshe and Malli are the picture perfect models of a happy, loving, devoted, married Jewish couple. One problem, they are dead broke! Diving deep into their Orthodox faith, they pray for help. But instead of a miracle, they are sent two devious escaped convicts. Seeing this as a test, Moshe and Malli make it their task to turn these strangers from unwelcome visitors into honored guests. "Gentle and affecting, it offers an introduction to a mostly unfamiliar world while touching on issues recognizable to all."
