Elderly Jewish writer Max Kohn (Otto Tausig) is an Austrian émigré whose mind is constantly working causing a state of perpetual confusion. He's a successful author of short stories who lives in New York City and is so stuck in his old ways that he believes that the only proper way to write is by using a typewriter. Max has several women interested in seducing him, but he spends most of his time with fellow worrier Reisel (Rhea Perlman). During a trip to speak in nearby Hanover Max begins editing his latest story—a wild tale of a Miami retiree who gets himself into various kinds of trouble. It doesn't take Max long to lose himself in his own writings, and pretty soon, he's mixed up in two sexy romances and an unsolved murder.

Rien ne va plus pour le Directeur des Ressources Humaines de la plus grande boulangerie de Jérusalem : il s’est séparé de sa femme, sa fille le boude et il est empêtré dans un boulot qu’il déteste. Suite à la mort accidentelle d’une de ses employées, la boulangerie est accusée d’inhumanité et d’indifférence par un quotidien local. Le DRH est alors envoyé en mission pour redorer l’image de l’entreprise. C’est le début d’un périple qui l'entraîne des rues mystiques de Jérusalem à la glaciale Roumanie, à la recherche du village de Yulia, cette femme qu’il ne connaissait pas mais qu’il apprend petit à petit à admirer. A la tête d’un convoi chaotique, entre le fils de la défunte, en révolte contre tous, un exaspérant journaliste, une consule excentrique et un encombrant cercueil, le DRH retrouve son humanité et sa vraie capacité à s’occuper des « ressources humaines ».

Mahmud Nasir (Omid Djalili) is a loving husband, doting father and a "relaxed" British Muslim who frequently listens to rock music, particularly the long deceased pop star Gary Page (James Floyd), and occasionally drinks alcohol. His son, Rashid, wishes to get married to Uzma, but he and Uzma need the blessing of her devout Muslim cleric stepfather, Arshad Al-Masri (Yigal Naor), whose actions and beliefs have earned him the contempt of many British Muslims. Mahmud reluctantly agrees to put on the act of devout Muslim for the occasion.

The movie starts off with a man, named Schlomo (Lionel Abelanski), running crazily through a forest, with his voice playing in the background, saying that he has seen the horror of the Nazis in a nearby town, and he must tell the others. Once he gets into town, he informs the rabbi, and together they run through the town and once they have got enough people together, they hold a town meeting. At first, many of the men do not believe the horrors they are being told, and many criticize Schlomo, for he is the town lunatic, and who could possibly believe him? But the rabbi believes him, and then they try to tackle the problem of the coming terrors. Amidst the pondering and the arguing, Schlomo suggests that they build a train, so they can escape by deporting themselves. Some of their members pretend to be Nazis in order to ostensibly transport them to a concentration camp, when in reality, they are going to Palestine via Russia. Thus the Train of Life is born.
