Construction worker Ahmad is not exactly a lucky fellow. He misappropriates money to allow his cousin a deal including ten laptops that unfortunately get stuck at the customs. As he neither able to pay nor to deliver the goods, he ends up in prison. Instead of bailing out Ahmad, his cousin is occupied with finding a sheep for the Eid. When crook Ibrahim takes away the last possibility of being quickly released, Ahmad is caught for good. Resigned at first, he starts to arrange with a life in prison and realizes that the absence of obligations is quite attractive. Massad’s caper movie is his first fiction, following award-winning documentaries.
