Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

A sheik instructs his representative to help him bring salmon fishing to the desert but the project requires the help of Britain's leading fisheries expert who thinks the idea is absurd. That is, until the Prime Minister's press secretary sees its potential as a 'good will' story. Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt co-star in this romantic comedy about embarking on an upstream journey of faith, fish and proving the impossible, possible.
