Synopsis

Khalid and Noura are in the delivery room, expecting their first newborn. Instead of being overcome with joy, Khalid finds himself awash with unsettling fear and uncertainty. When Khalid tries to get closer to his newborn, he is revisited by those same nightmares within himself. One day, Noura leaves Khalid alone with the baby and what he hopes is an opportunity to feel connected with his son turns into much more of a struggle for clarity. Can Khalid face his inner demons and reconcile with these apparitions in his head?
