Comedy East/West: a young, inexperienced Imam is sent directly from the Afghan desert to lead the Muslim community of Venice. Brought up in a religious school young Saladin is totally in the dark about the basics od modern life. Suddenly in Venice he tries to resolve his brothers’ problems, taking inspiration from traditional teachings. This proves to be not an easy task, of course. The allure of the modern world, however, gradually transforms him: especially when he meets the most rebelious and charming woman of the community, carismatic Zara.
