CGiii Comment

Whoa...this is an absolute, heart-breaking beauty.

The cinematography is perfection, the hell with it...this is faultless film-making!

Stunning. Absolutely stunning.


The(ir) Blurb...

Two childhood friends: Ahmad, a streetwise, college-bound scholar on the precipice of a new, bright future, and Sadik, a rehabilitated hooligan grappling with his identity, find themselves alone together before Ahmad's graduation party in the woods. Soon, unresolved issues and old resentments ignite a forbidden blaze between them that must be doused if Ahmad is to have any chance of escaping the past.
