In this witty comedy, a Nazareth businessman must negotiate with the holy city's rulers, gangsters and his own family, when he tries one last get rich shceme - selling "holy air". Adam (writer/director Shady Srour) is a Christian Arab living in Nazareth. His wife Lamia is a strong, beautiful and progressive arab woman who runs a foundation for women's rights. With a string of failed business ideas behind him and in urgent need of cash, Adam comes up with one last brilliant idea - selling Holy Air. Taking to the streets ans selling to tourists the very air that the Virgin mary breathed is a sure fire winner. But a venture like this requires the cooperation of the three powerful cultures ruling Nazareth - the Jewish politicians, the Muslim mafia boss and Catholic officials. In a politically unstable world where religion is just another merchandise, can the Holy Air be Adam's salvation or is it just an illusion? (2017)
