After a storm, Jafaar, a Palestinian fisherman from Gaza finds a pig in his net. The animal has more than likely fallen from a ship.

In this tragicomedy, the little town of Gaza, trapped between its everyday misery, the coercion of the Israeli soldiers and the scrutiny of the Islamic fundamentalists, is represented by a poor fisherman who tries to scrape a living and will do (almost) anything to get by..
