The sun is burning down on Kader and Rudy trying to pass the time in the scorching heat of their suburban neighborhood. The 11 year old Kader tries to keep Ramadan for the first time and takes it very serious, not wanting to disappoint his parents, or so he thinks. His best friend Rudy perceives the fasting during the day more like a game like challenge and so he joins Kader in the quest to resist hunger, thirst and boredom.
