Maktub      מכתוב


Co-Sponsored by


Maktub is an Arabic word meaning "everything is pre-written."

Steve and Chuma are a duo of rough and tough thugs who collect protection money for Keselsy, a Jerusalem-based crime organization. The destiny of these two small-time enforcers certainly changes when they survive a suicide bombing. They decide to take their future into their own hands, attempting to redeem themselves by fulfilling peoples' prayers. But, in keeping with their delinquent ways, the prayers have been stolen from the Holy City's Wailing Wall. While carrying out their dubious plans, they find themselves dealing with their own secrets and wishes in this hilarious, politically incorrect caper comedy.
