From A To B
It’s 2011 and Omar (Fadi Rifaai) finds himself still racked with guilt over the death of his best friend Hady, who passed away five years ago. Just days away from the birth of his first child, he decides to take the road trip they never got to take. Omar reaches out to his estranged high school friends Jay (Fahad Albutairi) and Ramy (Shadi Alfons), to take the road trip in his memory. The boys decide to drive from Abu Dhabi to Beirut and arrive on what would have been Hady’s twenty-fifth birthday. Their journey is filled with speed bumps - breakdowns, wrong turns, shady mechanics and a camel or two. If all of this doesn’t drive them crazy, it might just bring them closer.
