Sami struggles mightily to preserve his spiritual beliefs as he reluctantly assimilates into a strange and lonely new country. At first he seems to luck out and encounters those willing to assist him but as we all know, good fortune has a way of running out. Due to unforeseen circumstances, one day he is forced to find new living arrangements. This is when he meets the Hunters—Julia and her daughter Kerri—who have just suffered a tragic loss. Julia and Kerri both fall in love with Sami, and though his attraction to them is mutual, he knows that he must choose between the two. One impulsive summer afternoon triggers a chain of events that leave Sami with no choice but to flee. Years later he returns, now with a wife and a child, to face the devastating consequences of his rash behavior and poor judgment. The Tunisian is the story of a mother and daughter both drawn to the same man that neither can possess. The Tunisian explores the life-affirming power of friendship, the tenuous, often fragile bonds between a parent and child, and the promise of finding love unexpectedly—not once, but twice.
