When anti-Muslim graffiti targets hijab-wearing Fatima, her strict parents have her transferred to a new high school. Socially disconnected, she finds an unlikely friend in Jorah, a boy with a reputation for anger issues. As friendship blossoms into romance, they are forced to confront stereotypes, boundaries, and the consequences of their actions. Thought-provoking, comedic, and sometimes dark, Jabber invites audiences to examine their own assumptions and expectations of others, and reflect on how these impact their relationships.
