Yet deep inside, he feels that this discovery will change his life forever. Strangely, his confidence starts to grow and eventually he decides to approach her. The film stars Hiam Abbass (from "Succession"), Salim Dau, Maisa Abd Elhadi, & George Iskandar. It looks so sweet and humble - very much worth a watch.
