The filmmaker goes to Egypt, his country of origin, to film a documentary on the miraculous apparition of the Holy Virgin within the Coptic community of a small village outside of Cairo. Sounds simple enough. But when family, friends and events start changing his plans, Namir must rethink his original concept and change the tone and style to a film-within-a-film where he is both director and subject. Against the wishes of his mother, played by the filmmaker's real mother, he decides to actually stage an apparition of the Virgin Mary and starts mixing documentary, autobiography and fiction to hilarious effects.
