In Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods, Christine—a middle aged, middle class, recently divorced mother—finds a cause in the Whole Foods produce section. Her “cause” is Gabriel, a Sudanese “lost boy,” who fled civil war in his own country to find himself in snowy North America. Christine invites Gabriel to live with her and her teenage daughter in their suburban house and the drama ensues. One woman’s straightforward desire to help becomes a story uncovering the difficulty of understanding others.
