Synopsis

Dr. Alfred Jones, a fisheries scientist in London, is approached by a mysterious sheikh about an outlandish plan to introduce the sport of salmon fishing into the desert in Yemen. The Sheikh's absurd vision of bringing faith and hope to his people fails to resonate with the faithless, unhappy Brit. However, after initially refusing the proposal, Dr. Jones is swayed by the British government, the Sheikh and the Sheikh's glamorous real estate rep Harriet into accepting the job. The result is a ridiculous look at the dysfunction of government bureaucracy and the importance of faith in the face of impossibility.
