It is a sweltering summer day in the suburbs. Eleven-year-old Kader tries to observe Ramadan fasting for the first time. His best friend Rudy joins him in the adventure. As a non-Muslim, Rudy sees the whole thing as a new game. In order to make it through this rite of passage, the two boys will have to overcome hunger, thirst and boredom.
