Brother Jay recently moved into the world\'s most unusual flat share.Nestled in the center of Jerusalem lies the heart of Christianity, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Under its roof six Christian denominations live door to door. The young Franciscan`s gentleness is severely challenged by the conflicts in this multi-cultural collective. As Father Samuel, Prior of the Armenian community, defends his brothers`s rank in the pecking order with ploy and passion. Patriarch Theophilos III., on the other hand, is content: his Greek-Orthodox monks rule over the house as if they were in sole reign. Abdilkadr Joudeh and Wajeeh Nusseibeh lock the door in the morning and at night. They keep out of all this - they are Muslim.
Nevertheless, they endlessly argue over the question which job is more prestigious: to hold the key or to actually turn it.

"Insightful and nevertheless entertaining observation on the fact that faith is a very human matter." (Die Welt)
