When Adam, a Christian Arab living in Nazareth, learns that his wife Lamia is pregnant and his father falls very ill, he needs money more than ever. Despite all his business ideas failing so far, he gives one last try to make it big, selling air from the Holy Land to the city’s tourists. But in order to, as one priest tells Adam during confession, bring such product into the market he needs to find allies from the three cultures ruling over Nazareth – the Jewish politicians, the Muslim mafia boss and the Catholic church officials.
