When a tech-¬‐obsessed Qatari teen who is disconnected from his family travels back in time to an era before his beloved technology existed and pearl diving was the main source of income. He is forced to depend on himself to go through this journey where he then learns how to communicate face-¬‐to-¬‐face in order to reconnect with his family and appreciate them.
