Synopsis

Abdullah and Madi are the only children, working amongst the adults in a brick-making factory. A strange land, set somewhere between heaven and earth, a desert of ashes surrounded by abandoned ovens. Abdullah and Madi come from poor families with many children. They’ve never been to school and spend most of their lives working. Their close friendship is what helps them escape a little from the adult world.
