This movie was a box office blockbuster and critical and public favorite of almost unequalled proportions in recent years.
It tells the story of a Police marching band from Egypt visiting Israel to play in an Arabic music festival. For unknown reasons, they find nobody at the airport to pick them up, and are forced to fend for themselves. Hopelessly lost, and finding themselves in a forgotten backwater desert town, the cultural exchange they are involved in is not what anyone expected.
