Synopsis

Twelve-year-old Abdullah loves photography, so when his father gives him a new camera to reward him for getting good grades at school, he is thrilled. But while he is out and about taking shots, he inadvertently takes a picture of a crime in progress… and soon, the bandits are after him, intent on destroying the evidence. Dramatic with some clever comic relief, ‘A Picture’ is a great play on the old adage that crime doesn’t pay.
