Larry (Reynolds) is an American bohemian who has owned a popular book store in Amsterdam for thirty years. Aisha (Chaplin) is a beautiful young girl of Moroccan descent who comes to Amsterdam to “find herself.” Of course they meet and as their friendship develops, Larry is haunted by her resemblance to a girl he once romanced in Morocco ("the past is another country.") Of course that young girl today is Aisha's mother (Christie), a wealthy divorcee with an atrocious Middle Eastern accent. Interesting plot elements that lead to their inevitable reunion include why Larry is blackmailed into selling his store to foreign investors, and a book of poetry he wrote with Anya's face on the cover.
