Ramy follows the character of the show’s title, a second-generation Egyptian-American living in New Jersey. He constantly finds himself torn between two worlds, that of his Egyptian origins and his American everyday life.

His New Jersey community is politically divided, and while Ramy is committed to his Muslim faith, he feels uncomfortable in a country committed to capitalism.

The series is a sometimes darkly comical look at Ramy’s life in America and his spiritual journey to find his place in the country he lives in but struggles to call home.
