Out Of My Mind
- Come back soon to see screening dates
Mo is a Somali writer who grew up and still lives in Dubai. One day, Mo wakes up to find the electricity in his apartment disconnected—yet again. While hustling to find more writing gigs in an industry that considers him as a kinda-sorta-Arab, he continues pitching ideas that the “market” doesn’t want. His closest friend Duwana opens his eyes to the reality of his situation—adapt or change. From turning down a much-needed payday to write for a skin whitening cream brand to recording songs for brands that pay peanuts, Mo figures out he is responsible for all the hardships he’s facing. Duwana advises him to choose a path; writing or stand-up. He chooses stand-up. But he must first contend with unfinished business. His expired residency visa, trauma from his mother’s passing, a rocky relationship with his father and cutting out any so-called “friends” that hold him back.
