ON THE SHELVES FROM THE 20TH OF JAN, BASED ON A TRUE STORY, TWENTY TWO YEARS FROM LIFE
What is the one thing you wish for more than anything else in the world?

Fathi wakes up one morning to discover Allah has decided to give every old chicken a second chance. And, as it turns out, this couple still in love since their rainstorm meeting two decades earlier.

Based on a true story, this tale will make you grateful for every little thing you have taken for granted…
