Rochel (who is an Orthodox Jew) and Nasira (who is a Muslim originally from Syria) are young women who are just beginning as teachers in New York’s public school system. As Rochel is a teacher for the visually impaired, she meets Nasira (who teaches the fourth grade) as the aid for Eddie (one of Nasira’s students). They bond while working together on Eddie’s assignments, realizing that they share a lot in common. They also both fight against the stereotypes directed towards them, particularly from Principal Jacoby and Rochel’s families.
