However, it’s not long before his parents find out the true reason for their son’s return — after a long period of ambivalence towards his own Jewishness, Gad has officially decided to convert to Catholicism…Inspired by the director’s own fraught relationship to the Jewish faith and starring Elmaleh’s real-life family, Stay With Us is a heart-warming and charming story about faith, family and acceptance.
