Jafaar, a Palestinian fisherman who lives poorly in Gaza, one day gets more than his usual haul when he catches a pig. An unclean animal judged impure both by the Islam and the Jewish religions. Determined to get rid of the animal, Jafaar tries desperately to sell it, first to a United Nations official, then to a Jewish settlement where Yelena raises pigs not for their meat but for security reasons. Of course, going unnoticed in the company of a "forbidden" animal, among his Palestinian brothers, past Israeli soldiers and under the scrutiny of Islamic fundamentalists is no bed of roses and a series of misadventures await Jafaar....
