A comedy: When Adam hears that his wife Lamia is pregnant and his father falls very ill, he evaluates his life and realizes that he has not achieved much. Despite all his failed business ideas, he makes one last attempt to try to make it big. And what’s better to sell the very air that the Virgin Mary breathed during her annunciation in the Holy Land? But in order to do so, as one priest tells Adam during confession, one needs to find allies from the three cultures ruling Nazareth – the Jewish politicians, the Muslim mafia, and the Catholic Church officials. In a politically unstable world where religion is just merchandise, can Holy Air become Adam’s salvation?
