After securing her first catch of the day while crab-hunting with her father and brother, bright-eyed Jawaher proudly shows it to her father. He dismisses her outright but goes on to praise her brother’s haul. Determined to win her father’s approval, Jawaher shrugs off his hurtful reaction and sets out to catch ten crabs. On her quest, she finds herself battling for a catch with Nawaf, a boy who shares her goal.
