A Present from the Past


Mokhtar, a filmmaking professor, receives an unexpected present on his 75th birthday from his daughter Kawthar, a filmmaker in her early 20's. With two plane tickets to Rome, one for him and another for his daughter, he has a second chance to search for his unfulfilled love – Patrizia – an Italian woman whom he abandoned 33 years ago with a promise to come back for her, but never did. Kawthar filmed the experience with hidden cameras and used home videos to capture the real essence of their father/daughter relationship that fluctuates throughout the trip.
