“Hummus…it’s not normal, it’s not something ordinary…it’s magic. I have long tables, so people sit with people that they don’t even know and they eat together, they start talking…and everything starts to get mixed.”
Eliyahu Shmueli, Restaurateur

Hummus—the delicious, nutritious superfood sweeping America—has the power to bring Muslims, Christians and Jews together… in the Middle East, America, and around the world. Beyond cultural, religious and political divides, three colorful characters—a hardworking Muslim woman, an ever-smiling Jew and a young, restless Christian Arab—share one thing in common… a delicious passion for hummus! Spotlighted in the movie is “The World’s Largest Serving of Hummus”—the fiercely fought Guinness World Record title currently held by a Lebanese hummus maker at a huge 23,042 pounds. Beyond the competition, beyond arguments over the best hummus, this film tells the touching personal stories of the colorful men and women who love their hummus.
