Adapting her critically acclaimed novel Les Terres Saintes, Amanda Sthers writes and directs HOLY LANDS, which explores the complicated lives of the Rosenmerck family.
Lapsed Jew Harry (James Caan) is a former cardiologist who suddenly decided to spend his retirement as a pig farmer in Nazareth, Israel, in a move which deeply shocks his family, the local community and rabbi, Moshe (Tom Hollander).
