A successful Muslim businessman is lax in observing his faith, but still believes. His world is turned upside down when he learns he was adopted. To make matters worse, his birth mother was Jewish! And his name is actually Solly Shimshillewitz! As he tumbles into a full-scale identity crisis, a true comedy of religious errors unfolds as he seeks to regain his Jewish roots.
