Facing a crossroads in life, lapsed Jew and former cardiologist Harry (Academy Award Nominee James Caan) leaves New York and his family with an unlikely plan – to start a pig farm in Nazareth. His conflict with the town Rabbi, Moshe Cattan (BAFTA Award Winner Tom Hollander), slowly turns into a friendship that leads him to reevaluate his relationship with his estranged family, including his difficult ex-wife (Golden Globe Nominee Rosanna Arquette), 34-year-old student daughter, and gay playwright son (Golden Globe Award Winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers). Holy Lands is an emotional, humorous and dramatic story about the passage of time and the connections between people and family.
