Holy Air

Buy Tickets

With news of a new baby on the way, Adam reevaluates his life and realizes it isn’t amounting to much. And to top it off, he needs to make some cash — fast! An Arab Christian in Nazareth, Adam comes up with an idea that is perfect for the Pope’s upcoming visit: he will bottle and sell “Holy Air” — the very air that the Virgin Mary breathed. But before he can bring this groundbreaking product to market he’ll need to become allies with Nazareth’s three ruling cultures: the Jewish politicians, the Muslim mafia boss, and the Catholic church officials. In a politically unstable world where religion is just merchandise, can Holy Air become Adam’s salvation?
