About this film:

Abouna

Fifteen year old Tahir and eight year old Amine wake up one morning and
discover that their father is missing. The brothers decide to find him and wander through the town. Deeply disturbed by his sudden disappearance they begin to hang out, play hooky, and go to the movies. At the cinema, they think they see their father starring in one of the films onscreen. They steal the film reels and look for his face on the film, but the police arrest them. Weary of their antics, their mother sends them away to a Koranic school. At the school, they are very unhappy and plan their escape.
