A story of a father who loves his son so much, that he is willing to sacrifice his life to save his.

Long Synopsis:

A father’s love is so strong, that nothing can break this bond. No matter how bad a child is, no matter how much the child gets into trouble and causes problems for his family, they cannot escape the love of their father or mother.

Ali, is such a father, and his son Daniel is a lost child. Lost to the corrupt criminals who feed on the innocence of youth, to peddle their greed and not give a second thought to the trail of lives they destroy on their way.

Ali, is a stern father, he is strict with his son, but it’s out of love that he is so firm. He is from another generation, when father’s told their son how to behave, and how to be. But Ali does not have this relationship with his only son, and this breaks his heart.

Unwilling to give up, and doing all in his power to prevent his wife from feeling the pressure, Ali tries to mould Daniel into a man, but with little luck.

The burden of loosing is too much for Ali and he reaches his breaking point, when on the day of his wife’s birthday celebrations he decides to confront his fears, and the fears of his son.

He decides to put an end once and for all, to the corruption that surrounds his son and his family.
