Two men, three religions, one camel and a mission: An unorthodox comedy. Alexandria, Egypt. To save the once largest Jewish community in the world from being shut down, Ben, an ultra orthodox Brooklyn Jew, is sent out to be the desperately needed tenth man for the ceremonies of Pesach. Having missed his plane and been kicked off of the bus in the Sinai desert, his last hope is Adel, a grumpy Bedouin looking for his camel. When their car breaks down, it becomes a matter of their very survival.
WHY WE LIKE THIS FILM: Like an unexpected treasure you find while going through a drawer you haven’t looked at for a long time, this movie warms your heart and soul!
