Starring Oscar-nominated Norma Aleandro (Gaby), this gloriously irreverent family comedy fuses brilliant characterization and unrelenting humor to rework the age-old story of meeting the parents with a hilarious modern twist. With its astute blend of warmth and humor, "Only Human" is able to address head-on some of today's most salient issues: the meaning of family and community in an ever-shrinking world and the challenges and consequences at stake when cultures clash within our very homes... When Leni comes home to introduce her fiancé Rafi to her idiosyncratic Jewish family, everything goes smoothly until the lovers belatedly reveal that Rafi is Palestinian. Amid the ensuing hysteria, Rafi escapes to the kitchen, ostensibly to help prepare the dinner. Unfortunately, he drops the soup he was meant to defrost out of the seventh floor window, hitting a pedestrian below, and as if the evening's not going badly enough, it turns out the pedestrian may be Leni's father...
