Original Title
Khaled and his father represent two very different generations of contemporary Saudi society. When Khaled’s mother is hospitalized, the two start to find themselves physically closer than usual, but at the same time never further apart emotionally. With so little in common, Khaled’s father becomes fixated on his son’s religious obligations which only deepens their disconnection.
