Synopsis

In a courtroom a young boy named Zain (Zain Al Rafeea) stands before a judge. He asks to sue his own parents for giving him life. The turn of events that have brought him to this point take us on a journey through his poverty stricken upbringing in Beirut where he lives with his family. Forced to live by his wits in order to survive, his life reaches a turning point when his parents make an unforgiveable deal that will see his younger sister married off. Left distraught by this terrible turn of events, Zain takes to the road. Whilst looking for work at a fairground he befriends a young woman who is working illegally as a cleaner and helps to look after her adorable one-year-old baby Jonas. Zain and Jonas form a touching double act but things are about to get much more complicated when a set of circumstances force Zain to make choices that will have huge ramifications.
