His family threatened with financial ruin after his father is killed during a robbery, Lebanese-American youth Sami (E.J. Assi) puts college on hold in order to run the family-owned gas station in the heart of Detroit. Meanwhile, Sami's cousin Mike (Mike Batayeh) considers expanding the family business to a second location, and the rising price of petroleum sparks a feud with an adjacent gas station. Later, when the gorgeous Naj (Nada Shouhayib) shows up with a delivery of phone cards from her brother's store, Sami starts to fall in love. Unfortunately or Sami, Naj's brother proves a bit more overprotective than expected.
