Tamim Sadikali

Two families reunite for a feast on Eid ul-Fitr ­­– the day Muslims celebrate the end of the month of fasting – and boys who grew up together will meet again... as men. As the big day approaches, two of the men go to the mosque, one leaves his girlfriend and another watches porn. Nevertheless, they arrive intent on embracing the day. Old enmities are put aside as they take tentative steps towards each other.

This is a story about love, hate, longing and sexual dysfunction, all sifted through the fallout from the war on terror, and how we drift from each other, leaving every man stranded across a wasteland of atrophied connections. We witness the realities of a post-9/11 world filter down, touch individual lives, combine with some internal tension, and finally spill over.
