Amjad is losing his mind. It's been a month since Bushra had let him near her. She's too busy with work, studies and the kids and has no sexual desire or strength for Amjad at night. To keep him away, she uses an exceptionally hideous nightgown that Um Amjad bought her. Amjad, who can no longer stand the situation, decides to put an end to the horrible nightgowns. As he tries to purchase sexy lingerie for Bushra at the women's underwear store, he gets in trouble and is suspected to be an Arab pervert.
About Arab Labor
Created by Sayed Kashua, a 32-year-old Israeli-born Palestinian journalist, Arab Labor (translated from the Hebrew "Avoda Aravit" which colloquially implies "shoddy or second-rate work") focuses on Amjad, a Palestinian journalist and Israeli citizen in search of his identity as he seeks high status in the society into which he was born but where his car is searched everyday when he drives from his neighborhood to his job at a newspaper in Jerusalem.
Poking fun at the cultural divide, Kashua and his characters play on religious, cultural and political differences to daringly depict the mixed society that is Israel. This show marked a milestone on Israeli television as the first program to present Palestinian characters speaking Arabic on primetime. Arab Labor has generated great controversy between Arab and Israeli media and Link TV is premiering the program to the US television audience in order to offer a fresh perspective on Israeli-Palestinian cultural friction while presenting an unbelievably entertaining show that has made an international splash.
