In a typical Arab-American neighborhood in Detroit, Sami works behind the bulletproof glass of the 24-hour gas station he co-owns with his cousin, Mike. When Samiís father was killed during an armed robbery, he found himself burdened with a life he never wanted ó a world composed of junk food, magazines, and long-distance phone cards. Aided by a scatterbrained parking lot attendant, Sami and Mike struggle to keep the business afloat. The station becomes more than just a pit stop for rolling papers and off-brand perfume when the beautiful and spirited Najlah walks in, and Samiís shift becomes anything but routine. He allows himself to dream of a life away from the limited horizons of a sliding plexiglas window and traditional family bonds. Detroit Unleaded is part screwball comedy, part coming-of-age story about the dreams of second-generation Americans navigating family, love, money, and friendship while finding the courage to build their own future.
