Three brothers, owners of a pizza parlor, run a smooth drug operation. All is going well until one is released from prison and decides to go legit. Their dealer coerces them into a last drug run, and they decide that making a film to hide their smuggling operation is the way to go.

This brash dark comedy by a new Lebanese talent is a tour-de-force of filmmaking, not to be missed.

Director: Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya

Variety: "An all-too-real fake movie fronts a drug-smuggling plot in this smile-inducing Lebanese comedy."
