Blind Sun

Dubai Film Connection

A seaside resort in Greece is plagued by a heavy heat wave. Water is rare and violence is ready to explode. Ashraf, a solitary immigrant, guards a French family's villa while they are away. In this dry land, crushed by the sun, he is stopped by a policeman for an ID check, and thus pushed to start a new adventure.
