Exploring the drastic changes experienced by the United Arab Emirates over the past few decades, this film focuses on the relationship between the director, a young Emirati woman, and her paternal grandmother, her last remaining grandparent. Young people in the UAE traditionally have lunch at their grandparents’ house every Friday, and although the director follows that tradition, she realises that she and her grandmother actually know nothing about each another.
