Mohammed Al Ibrahim / Feature Narrative / Qatar / 100 min / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Drama, Social Issues

Synopsis

Khalifa and Nasser are two cousins who have one bonding ritual: they camp out every weekend at the Inland Sea; scouring the desert, day and night, acting as a rescue team for anyone in need of help. When they come across an old four-wheel drive nestled deep beneath a dune with screams echoing out of it, the duo finds themselves becoming more of a source of trouble than a source of help. What begins as a rescue mission to save a woman’s life spirals into a dangerous feat of survival that will change the lives of everyone involved.
