Deli owner Salam Kahil is an art collector, a former male escort, an amateur musician, and a sandwich maker to the homeless in Vancouver’s poorest neighborhood but his true passion is talking about sex.
THE SANDWICH NAZI follows Kahil as he struggles to come to terms with aging, failing health, and a past that forced him to flee his home in Lebanon as a child. Salam has suffered considerably at the hands of his family and when you combine that with the taxing relationships in which he may have engaged as a male escort, you might think that he would be driven to misanthropy.
Yet, in something of a surprise twist, the man he has become loves people very deeply.
It’s clear in every moment that we see him at the deli, that he gets so much joy out of the company of the people around him. Salam has managed to channel all of this pain from his youth into some of the funniest anecdotes and stories that you’ll ever hear.
THE SANDWICH NAZI is about finding a new family when the one you’re born with doesn’t work out.
