About the Film


Ramy is a peaceful teenager who enjoys his skates, playing cards, and a few cigarettes with his friends. He lives in a humble neighborhood where manhood and violence go hand-in-hand. One day, as he jokes around with his friends out on the street, his words are mistaken for an insult by the local gangster. Events escalate when tit-for-tat violence ensues. The Amman district’s compacted hills, streets, and alleys tell the story of how fragile safety and stability can be in the shadows of anger and revenge.
