Towelhead Synopsis

Jasira wants something she can\'t define: attention, love, acceptance or a normal life. Unfortunately, she doesn\'t know the right way to find it. When Jasira\'s mother exiles her to Houston to live with her strict, quick-to-anger Lebanese father, she quickly learns what aspects of herself to suppress in front of him. In private, however, she conducts her sexual awakening with all the false confidence that pop culture and her neighbor\'s magazines have provided. The result is a funny, dark, bold and harrowing look at the confusion and misguided exploration of youth in America\'s track houses, public schools and suburban wastelands.

Rated for strong disturbing sexual content and abuse involving a young teen, and for language
