From the beloved director of Chocolat and the Oscar®-winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire comes the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. A visionary sheik believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people. He instructs his representative to turn the dream into reality, even when Britain’s leading fisheries expert thinks the project both absurd and unachievable. This unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
For a fisherman, the only virtues are patience, tolerance, and humility. -Sheik Muhammad
