synopsis
Gossip and violence run rampant deep in the labyrinthine alleys of East Amman. Ali, a hustler pretending to be a businessman, has to keep his relationship with Lana a secret in order to hide from society's judgmental eye. Things start to fall apart when Lana’s mother, Aseel, is blackmailed by an unknown voyeur, who has filmed the young couple. Hoping to avoid embarrassment, Aseel discreetly convinces Abbas, a ruthless gangster, to put a stop to it all... but things do not go as planned. Their lives start to intertwine and collide not only with each other, but with other neighbours living in the same alleys.
