What Is the Story of Sons of the Prophet?
Joseph Douaihy, the elder son of a Lebanese family in Pennsylvania, can’t catch a break. Tragedy after tragedy befalls his lower-middle-class clan, and Joseph finds himself living with his younger brother and an elderly uncle while suffering from unexplained chronic pain. In order to get health insurance, he takes a job as an assistant to an eccentric former book editor, who wants to parlay his family’s distant relationship to poet Khalil Gibran into a comeback. When the Douaihy’s latest tragedy becomes a news story involving a local high school sports star, Joseph and his family are forced to test the limits of their forgiveness.
