“Light, cheerful, thoughtful and exciting” — Kinozeit

Three religions, two men, and a camel with a mission. An unorthodox comedic road movie set in Alexandria, Egypt.

To save the once largest Jewish community in the world from being shut down, Ben — an ultra-orthodox Brooklyn Jew visiting Jerusalem — volunteers to fly to Egypt to be the desperately needed tenth man for the ceremonies of Pesach. Having missed his plane and been kicked out of the bus in the Sinai desert, Ben’s last hope is Adel, a grumpy Bedouin looking for his camel. When their car breaks down, the only way forward is together — but how can the ultra-Orthodox practices of a Brooklyn Jew be reconciled with the pragmatism of a Bedouin in the middle of the desert?
