SYNOPSIS

The news of Michael Jackson's death takes an Islamic cleric, known as ‘Jackson’ during his school days, by surprise. But what does a preacher have in common with the King of Pop? More importantly, his struggle to conciliate his life as a preacher with his past life and relationships raise the most prominent question in his mind: is he the Sheikh, Jackson, or both?
