Zahraa is a refugee who dreams of going to school. Instead, she spends her days with her brother, Hassan, scouring a landfill site for valuable materials, and competing with other scavengers. When a trade between Zahraa and the self proclaimed ‘King of Garbage’ goes wrong, her relationship with Hassan is tested to the breaking point.

In Arabic with English subtitles.
