Hamad is a delinquent. He is forever stealing the neighbour’s car to go joyriding with his friend, then returning it without the owner ever knowing it was taken. He notices his father’s new obsession with camel beauty contests, finding it very strange that a city man is so interested in such a thing. One day, Hamad’s friend calls him up, asking for help to cover up the unintentional murder of his girlfriend. Hamad determines that the young woman is just unconscious and tries to help her. He and his friend take her to Hamad’s house, and Hamad’s father leaves for a business trip. Everything goes well until the police show up at the door, looking for Hamad’s father, who has been laundering money at the beauty contests. Hamad now deals with the situation of his friend’s girlfriend with a different view on life.
