What will you do, if you would know at what age you will die? In a Sudanese village in the sixties, a mother gives birth to Muzamil, only for him to come with a Dervish prophecy that he is going to die at the age of twenty. His father has fled the impending grief. His mourning mother hides him from the outside world. At the age of 19 he finds refuge in Quran school, relationship with a young girl and the filmed images an old cameraman shows. A fatal day is coming...

 

„Director Amjad Abu Alala was inspired by short story of Sudanese novelist Hamour Zyad. Despite its simplicity, director says, it was important for him to depict a lot of grief for those communities that are drowned in superstitions and ignorance. The Film is dedicated to the victims of the Sudanese Revolution." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
