During one particular night shift, he notices the young and beautiful Ayusha and the impossible situation she is in, all the way in North Africa. Ayusha and Kaarim are in love, but Aysha’s family wants to marry her off to an older man who is a total stranger to her. The couples only chance is to run away together.
