Cultures & Communities Festival

Donya works for a Chinese fortune cookie factory in San Francisco. As a former Afghan translator for the U.S. military, she struggles to put her new refugee life back in order. Featuring standout performances from newcomer Anaita Wali Zada and THE BEAR's Jeremy Allen White, FREMONT "finds romance in everyday interactions, and in the easy pleasure of opening up a cookie and reading one's fortune."
