Shot in Dubai, U.A.E. the film walks beside a thirteen year old Muslim boy through his first day of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan. We gain an insight into his understandings, misjudgments and difficulties, and take a glance at how he copes with his family upbringing and an Islamic orientated environment in the world today.
