The story of an orange that grew without a tree. A comic, cinematic allegory about the dream of two young filmmakers.
Two young filmmakers, Mustafa and Ayoub, are on the verge of making a new film, but struggle to get it financed. A modern symbolic tale about recognition, independence and originality, and the confusion of tongues when you have to translate substantial issues for foreign sponsors. First Syrian film in the short film competition at Cannes, co-produced by the Netherlands.
