Synopsis

A 12- year-old boy has just moved to Doha with his parents. To avoid dealing with the changes this brings about, he spends his days playing a space exploration video game. On the last day before starting at a new school, his computer breaks down, so he is forced to go out for the first time. All alone in the desert, in surroundings that become increasingly similar to the game he has been playing, he finds himself on a rescue mission to find life on a deserted planet. With the real world transformed into a digital universe, the boy faces his fear of the unknown and “plays his way home” – a task he must complete in order to accept his new environment.
