Young Ibrahim"s fresh crush on a girl at school is tempered by the fact he"s just been kicked out for poor grades. Unable to face the truth and frantic to get away from his responsibilities at home to meet up with the girl, Ibrahim tells a little white lie to his father that will have extraordinary repercussions.
