Synopsis by Maggie Sadler
Sakina (Islam Mubark) fears for her young son, Muzamil (Mustafa Shehata), after a Sheikh prophecies during his naming ceremony that he will die at the age of twenty. Coming of age with this knowledge haunting his every step, Muzamil struggles to negotiate the ordinary trials of adolescence with Sakina's stifling protectiveness and a desire to break free. As the young man forges new relationships and encounters new ideologies, he begins to rethink the course of his life and what he desires of the future. Written and directed by Amjad Abu Alala. Mahmoud Elsaraj and Bunna Khalid co-star.
