The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City, the most sacred place in Christendom, is shared between many different religious communities: Orthodox, Catholic, Armenian, Copt, Syrian and Ethiopian. They try to maintain the old, fragile status quo of these places. Two Muslim families hold the key to the church, each claiming the right to be the keeper of this historic key. As for Johnny, an Israeli police officer, he’s responsible for keeping the peace at the Holy Sepulchre.
