Much to her embarrassment, a girl is picked up after school by her father in his dusty truck. Undeterred by his daughter’s dismissive demeanour, he decides to take her on a detour: fishing in the Arabian Gulf. Though she is initially disgusted by the prawn bait and just wants to go home, the girl ultimately gains insight into her father’s ways by spending this brief time with him. Ride along with this slice-of-life drama, which shows us how patience and sharing traditions can bridge the gap between generations.
