Inherit the Earth is director Yaky Yosha's first documentary feature. It documents the combined efforts of Christians and Jews to make the Pope's visit to the Holy Land a successful one.

In the winter of 2000, Yosha and his crew documented all stages in the building of a massive amphitheater, for the one hundred thousand people scheduled to participate in an open-air mass Pope John-Paul II would lead on the Mount of Beatitudes – where two thousand years earlier, Jesus of Nazarath gave the "Sermon on the Mount" to his followers.

For six weeks, two-dozen Jewish contractors and Christian priests worked back to back and against all odds, confronting deadline as well as deadly weather conditions.
