Beyond the mystique and competition, beyond the religious and political divides, this movie celebrates the lives of ordinary people who are extraordinary in their devotion to making and serving the best hummus.  We follow their lives in the Middle East, in Russia, and in Germany to learn how the love of Hummus can bring people together all over the world.  This movie tells fascinating personal stories — and who can resist the sight of the world’s largest bowl of hummus?
