Synopsis / Plot
One day Namir Abdel Messeeh, a filmmaker of Egyptian origin, watches a videotape of the Virgin Mary’s apparition in Egypt with his mother. Like millions of other Copts, she sees the Virgin on the screen while he sees nothing. Skeptical about the videotape, Namir travels back to Egypt to make a film about these apparitions but he soon discovers plenty of obstacles. The result is a humorous fictional documentary and family-drama-cum-culture-clash about religion in the Diaspora, the art of cinema and the boundless creativity of filmmakers.
