Original Title
After giving up a promising career in museum management to attend to his ailing father, Ahmed spends his days managing the family’s dying perfume business. This sacrifice and his divorce have made him cynical about human nature and this manifests itself in his relationship with Abdulrahman, his aloof 12-year-old boy. Suddenly, Ahmed’s ex-wife sues to deny him visitation rights, claiming she doesn’t want her son to see his grandfather dying slowly.
