Nat is a baker with a failing business. Nat's customer base is slowly dwindling owing to simple mortality, and his sons have no particular interest in taking over the bakery; furthermore, a hostile businessman develops his own greed-motivated plan to grab the property. What's a tired, cornered, old-school baker to do? Ayyash to the rescue. Ayyash is a refugee from Darfur Nat hired to help with the daily chores; the new guy also happens to peddle weed on the side. One day Ayyash accidentally drops his stash in the dough mix, and the challah begins zooming off the shelves. Dough, which stars Jonathan Pryce as Nat, screens at 8 p.m. tonight at the Landmark Plaza Frontenac Cinema 1701 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Frontenac; 314-994-3733 or www.stljewishfilmfestival.org) as part of the St. Louis Jewish Film Festival. Tickets are $8 to $11.
