Additional Info

Bumbling pilgrims come searching for hermits in the Egyptian desert but meet instead an exasperating, quick-witted con-man and two crusty locals who turn their search upside down. Things are not what they seem, and the seekers are led by a strange path into the mysteries of life where tears and laughter are mingled. The pilgrims find not quite what they were looking for but something more valuable, hidden in the desert of the human heart.
