Jacob's feet are so turned out that he walks like Charlie Chaplin. He is different because of that and decides to emigrate from Palestine to Canada, where "everyone is equal". There everybody treats him kindly, and a thief specializing in stealing money from cash machines takes him into his home and treats him like a son, waitress Selma finds him a job as a Chaplin imitator, "prophet" Khalil Gibran gives him wise advice.

If there was academy awards for the worst movie ever, this movie would win them all. Worst Picture, Worst Performance, Worst Music.. Although the movie is justly classified as comedy, believe it or not, it's a drama!! and that makes it even more funny. The main character suffers from something I like to call "the Chaplin syndrome". At one point of the movie he says "it's a birth defect". I would classify it as screenplay/directing defect. And it's cureless! Every serious director should consider watching this movie at least once. It will be a rewarding experience. It's full of clichés and bad acting. You will learn a lot from it!
