My Uncle and I

Daniel is a 10-year old Lebanese who leads a simple childhood. His biggest inspiration is his 50-year old uncle, Tony. As a restaurant owner, a proud uncle, and an individual surrounded by friends, Tony has it all. He's nostalgic, sensitive, and generous. Maybe too picky for a middle aged man, but the one thing he truly and obviously lacks is a sweetheart. Daniel will do everything in his power to see him happy again. Set in 2007, this melodramatic comedy unfolds as Daniel goes on a mission to find his uncle's better half.
