Hatem Sadeeq Jassem (Hatem The Friend Of Jassem)
Jassem is a young Kuwaiti man, waiting at the airport for his friend Hatem, a Kuwaiti now living in Egypt. Hatem is eager to return to his homeland and to meet his dear friend Jassem again. But when a sudden quarrel flares up between the two old chums, leading to a fatal accident, Hatem is utterly crushed. This is a tender, heartbreaking story that reflects on deep, lifelong friendships, whether between two men, or two nations such as Egypt and Kuwait.
