Fernando Fernán Gómez,
When his reckless brother, Abel (Asier Etxeandia), refuses to man up and take responsibility for getting young Muslim beauty Aisha (Nur Al Levi) pregnant, bashful Spanish butcher Cain (Javier Cifrián) agrees to marry the girl and act as the child's father. But the simple plan goes haywire when Cain discovers he must first adopt Aisha's Islamic faith as his own.
What starts out like a contrived infomercial to dispel confussion about what is Muslim versus the image of cultural repression many Muslim countries disseminate; slowly turns into an entertaining situational comedy. The situation is conteived but not unbelievable, and the protagonists interpretation is convincing enough to sell it.
