The whole film was created in 48 hours as part of the "48 Hour Film Project - Dubai" competition. With his debut work 'The Bridge of Time' spending seven weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list, Karim Mushtak was once hailed as the most promising Arab novelist of his generation. And then he disappeared from the public eye. A group of filmmakers find him in a run down residential compound where he is the last remaining tenant, refusing to move out as he tries to complete perhaps the most difficult of all second novels.
