Soleil, a 16-year-old Iranian, must adjust when his family moves from the middle-class German town of Göttingen to the more diverse neighbourhood of Berlin-Wedding. He is welcomed warmly into a local gang of young men from various Muslim backgrounds who aren’t aware of Soleil’s secret – his family is Jewish. We watch helplessly as Soleil struggles with his conflicting need for acceptance, his first love and his Jewish identity.

Based on Arye Sharuz Shalicar’s autobiography, A Wet Dog is Better than a Dry Jew, Wet Dog offers a fresh and thought-provoking perspective on the coming-of-age genre through the authentic voice of a confused but passionate teenager.
