Set in Zanzibar, the film is about Seif, a heroin addict who believes he was cursed into drug addiction. The attraction to Seif was that he was very clear on who he was, could have been and had become. So, perhaps, this platform allows the viewers to witness this one last attempt of a man become the man he wants to be.
