A Son’s Sacrifice follows the journey of Imran, a young American Muslim who struggles to take over his father’s halal slaughterhouse in New York City.

A first-generation American, Imran must confront his mixed heritage and gain acceptance from his father’s immigrant community at the traditional storefront slaughterhouse.
On the holiest day of the year, Imran must lead a sacrifice that will define him as a Muslim, as an American and as a son.

A serious and yet funny look at tradition and religion clashed against youth and urban city life.
