Original Title
Taami Al Samakat
It’s night. It’s the Night Shift. One man has to watch over the factory. What secrets will the night bring to this empty place?
NightShift follows a factory security guard who suffers from short-term memory loss, which makes him write down what is required of him immediately to remember. When he hears the news of the factory owner’s daughter being kidnapped, his nightshift turns upside down.
