26 November 2009 | by (Jordan) – See all my reviews

I cried watching this movie , The story is very emotional and sad , it is about the life of poor teenage boy Mohammed living with his mother , who works as a home servant for rich people , trying to survive the everyday material needs and to maintain her child's needs . Mohammed a decent and ambitious boy finds it difficult to cope with his teenage needs, the seduction of women and life, so he finds refuge

in extreme religious group , this affects his relation with everybody especially his mother . The movie has a tragic ending. Its must see movie.
