It is 2017, months before Saudi Arabia would legalize filmmaking. A non-Saudi film director, documenting the last-minute production scrambles for his vlog, must pull off a successful shoot in order to impress the Saudi father of a girl who is a producer on the film. In the process, we witness a journey to make a film become a quest for acceptance.
