About The Band's Visit

Welcome to Nowhere…

When a twist of fate sends a group of Egyptian musicians to the sleepy, desert town of Bet Hatikva, Israel instead of Petah Tikva—easy mistake to make—their lives become surprisingly entwined with the locals who take them in for one unforgettable night. Nothing about these two groups of people is the same—but that may be the very thing that makes all the difference.
