What Is The Band's Visit About?
A simple spelling mistake at the Egypt/Israel border sees the Alexandria Police Band redirected to the wrong town, where there is no public transport, nor hotels. Taken in by the charitable restaurant owner as they discuss their predicament, the band are invited to stay at his various relatives' homes overnight. As they all get to know each other, both sides' initial fears and suspicions are replaced by friendship, understanding, and in one case, even love.
