Synopsis

Ibrahim, Suleiman, Manar and Altayeb, lifelong friends for more than 45 years, left their homeland to study cinema abroad. After years of distance and exile, they meet again with the hope of making their old dream come true: to bring cinema to Sudan, a country where both its production and exhibition are forbidden. They are determined to leave something behind and to ignite the love for the seventh art. They decide to rent an old and dilapidated open-air cinema for a large free screening. But how you  do this in a country where there are power cuts, you lack the equipment and infrastructure, and film is clearly still out of favor with the regime?
