Description: In New York, David, a Jewish American TV host of "Sex and Happiness", falls in lust with sensual Layla, a Kurdish immigrant. Faced with deportation, Layla must make a crucial life decision: to marry the exciting, witty Jewish David or conservative Muslim Dr. Ahmed? David's lust turns to love as he discovers that behind the mysterious Layla is a strong, intelligent, sensitive human being with an ancient culture that parallels David's own Jewish tradition--spice, music, dance and humor, despite unspeakable tragedy. David and Layla follow their hearts only to open up a whole new set of complications: who will convert and how will this young couple shake off their "baggage" of their families' prejudices and the background of hate, war and death flashed daily in the Media? David & Layla take the plunge: they wed, obliging the two families to discover that they share more in basic humanity than they had imagined; finding that love is wise and hatred is foolish.
