In the rural western Canadian cowboy town of Red River, widowed rancher Mac Bagley opens his home to a fractured Syrian refugee family.

Withstanding some opposition in the conservative town, former journalist Layla, her young magic-inspired daughter Heba, and her adult gay brother Salem struggle to gain footing in this new land, while Mac finds himself in similar circumstances as he seeks for meaning and hope after the loss of his wife. While waiting for news of her missing husband, Layla introduces Mac to her Muslim culture. She proposes they partner in opening an Arabic “booza ice cream” shop to help them both move forward

Shot in and around Calgary (Longview, Black Diamond), JASMINE ROAD is a stunning and heartwarming sophomore film from Calgary-based writer/director Warren Sulatycky (APRIL IN AUTUMN).
