|Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor in a Yemen scene.|
Ewan McGregor plays Fred, an straight-laced government worker who specializes in fisheries. He and his boss (who has really bad hair) have a mutual disrespect for each other, so Fred gets assigned to this odd-ball, long-shot project of transporting salmon to a river in Yemen, and ensuring the right environment for the fish to survive.
Enter Emily Blunt who plays Harriet. She's an assistant/project manager for a very wealthy Sheikh (he doesn't blink at spending $55 million on this project), and she's the smart as a whip, light-hearted foil to Fred's stuffy practicality.
