A guy named Ramy lives in New Jersey. His parents are the migrants from Egypt and devout Muslims. From his birth, Ramy was brought up according to the precepts of Islam, and he isn’t going to renounce the religion of his ancestors, in no case. But at the same time, Ramy is a typical ‘millennial’ whose youth falls on very frivolous times amidst liberal environment.
The title character doesn’t have to choose between Islam and the modern living in New Jersey. The young man is simply trying to reconcile in himself two such seemingly opposite things – the life path of a devout Muslim and a world where no one seems to believe in anything.
In attempts to combine secular and religious life sides, Ramy sometimes finds himself in very funny situations, but the most important thing is that he’s not afraid to be funny, because only sound sense of humor can soften the edges, makes his life easier and helps him to cope with stereotypes that stand in his way.
