His dreams are tested when his stepfather falls critically ill and he's forced to risk his future by smuggling gasoline to pay the hospital bills. When he befriends Mimi, a beautiful but damaged prostitute, the two try start a new life together, but the past is never far behind. Haroun's charismatic and lanky lead actor delivers spectacularly athletic dance sequences, shot with a lush palette alternating between the bright colors of Chad and the dark shadows that engulf Grigris's world.
