Upon hearing about the myth of falling stars, an orphan’s hope of reuniting with his parents is restored. When night falls on Al-Wakrah village, he sneaks out to the beach with his stepbrother. He realises things have not gone as planned, however, when he wakes up the next morning and his stepbrother is nowhere to be found.
