Summary
Fatima Abdullah tries to tie up the loose ends of her crazy family, including finding a wife for her openly gay grandson and teaching Arabic to her pregnant teenage great-granddaughter, all while under surveillance by two bumbling FBI agents. A magic carpet ride examining the lives of Fatima Abdullah and her huge dysfunctional family. Imitating Scheherazade, Fatima spins her own tales to the legendary storyteller, Scheherazade. And she has plenty of material: Fatima is dying, and more interested in her prized possessions, including a house in Lebanon, than in reuniting her splintered offspring and her estranged husband, Ibraham
