Golden Globe-nominated director Tom Tykwer presents this romantic comedy about an American businessman who travels to Saudi Arabia, hoping to sell a new IT system to a wealthy king. Oscar winner Tom Hanks stars as Alan Clay, who finds himself baffled by the local Saudi customs and thwarted by an opaque bureaucracy. With the help of hilarious taxi driver Yousef (Alexander Black) and a beautiful Saudi doctor named Zahra (Sarita Choudhury), Alan eventually finds his footing in this romantic comedic story, based on the bestselling novel by Dave Eggers, of colliding cultures and the dashed hopes and desperation of American business abroad.
