Synopsis: 

This big-hearted film about a Lebanese-American kid who unexpectedly finds himself taking over the family business flows with unbridled comedic moments and a parade of amusing supporting characters. Detroit Unleaded offers an entertaining and thought-provoking view of race relations and economic struggles within a rarely explored milieu of contemporary American life.
