A thousand and One follows unapologetic and free-spirited Inez who kidnaps six-year-old Terry from the foster care system. Holding onto their secret and each other, mother and son set out to reclaim their sense of home, identity, and stability, in a rapidly changing New York City. “Character portraits just don’t come sharper than ‘A Thousand and One.’” —Bob Mondello, NPR
