Namir travels to Egypt, his native land, to make a film about miraculous appearances of the Blessed Virgin Mary among the Coptic Christian community. His investigation provides an excuse to visit his family, in the countryside, and to involve the whole village in a fantastic celebration… Part documentary, part personal invention, a wonderful comedy about roots, beliefs and… filmmaking. → trailer
