Set in a small seaside town in Ras Al Khaimah, one of the one of the more traditional, less-developed Emirati states, this gentle coming-of-age story follows two teenagers on the rocky road to adulthood. Cousins Mansoor and Kaltham lead a low-key life, frustrated by family expectations and hardship, but also respectful of long-held traditions. Mansoor is close to pretty Kaltham, but doesn’t really know how to express his feelings. His friend, Sultan, more experienced with the opposite sex, convinces him to use his scant savings to buy her a gift. But before Mansoor can deliver his present, he is thrown off course by the sophisticated and teasingly flirtatious Owaish, whose family he delivers iced sherbet to. Meanwhile, Kaltham’s brother Jasim, who lives in Dubai, arrives home, concerned about his sister. He is furious to find that the local barber has shown too much interest in her, and she is sick with shame. In his second feature, Abu Dhabi-born director Nawaf Al-Janahi shows how small issues can have major repercussions when confronting deep-rooted values.

Director Nawaf Al-Janahi is expected to attend both screenings.
