Program

In a Sudanese village, a mother gives birth to a boy Muzamel, who comes with a Dervish prophecy that he is going to die at the age of twenty! Muzamel grows surrounded by looks of sympathy that make him feel dead before his time, until Suliman, a cinematographer who has worked in the city, returns to the village. Suliman’s old cinema projector opens a window to a whole new world to Muzamel. Muzamel's personality starts to change with Suliman's presence and slowly he starts doubting the truth of the prophecy. His mother desperately attempts to stop the prophecy. After many defeats including losing his father, Muzamel starts to dig his own grave. When the day of his twentieth birthday arrives, Muzamel is torn by doubt and left with a choice between his death, the whore house and a bus to the world he's eager to know about.
