“A winningly satiric comedy that’s as tenderhearted as it is sly.”
Hollywood Reporter

Squeezed for money father-to-be Adam, an Arab-Christian from Nazareth, comes up with the ingenious idea of selling bottled holy air from Mount Precipice to the city’s pilgrims. His intentions are as pure as the air he sells but success proves to be more difficult to achieve than expected. Shady Srour wrote, directed and stars in this poignant satire that mocks everything from the booming business of spirituality to interfaith relations and takes us on a fascinating cultural tour of modern-day Nazareth.
