In a Sudanese village, Muzamel is born readily cursed by a Dervish prophecy, stating that he will die at the age of 20. Muzamel grows up amongst looks of sympathy that make him feel dead before his time, until Suliman – a cinematographer who was working in the city – returns to the village. Suliman’s old cinema projector offers Muzamel a window overlooking a whole new world.
When his 20th birthday arrives, he is faced with a choice between accepting impending death and a bus to the world he is eager to experience.
