The Alexandria Ceremonial Orchestra arrives in Israel to play at the opening
of the Arab Cultural Center. Dressed in full regalia and observing all
military police protocol, the members of the orchestra look forward to playing
at what might be the most important venue of their careers. But nobody
shows up to meet them, and they mistakenly catch a bus to a small forgotten Israeli
town in the desert. When it becomes clear there’s no way out until morning,
a night of uneasy cultural détente ensues.
