Sea Shadow

Synopsis: Mansoor, a 16 year-old teenager, living in a coastal "freej" (an Emirati neighborhood), has strong feelings for 16 year-old girl Kaltham. But culture and tradition, as well as family hardship, make it difficult for him to express his feelings. A conversation with his "know-it-all" friend convinces him that a gift is the best way to express love, and so, he begins to look for ways to save money for the gift without arousing the suspicion of his family and friends.

How many times have I told you

to always put the sherbet in the fridge?

Are you an idiot? When will you learn?

You left the sherbet out in the middle of

the courtyard, now, all the cats ate from it

God help me with you!

Where are you going?

Pick up the sherbet cooler

and deliver it to Hajj Saleh's house

Mansoor, where are you going?

Where do you think I'm going?

- I want to talk to you about something

- What?

The old lady's place

Later, now follow me

Your mother should pay you

for all these deliveries

Father, I made cheese and thyme fatayer

should I pack some for you?

I'm not hungry

Alsalam Alaikom

See you uncle

We're going fishing on Friday

are you coming?

- I'm notsure

-What do you mean you're not sure?

-Are you coming or not?

- I'm not sure

I'm not really good at it

Oh yes, you only stand

by the shore... like a women

Anyway, it's easy... I'll teach you

You know what Sultan?

I hope that one day

I'll catch a really big fish

and ride my bicycle

around town showing it om

Well, first you have

to learn how to fish

Just sitting on the beach is useless

l don't remember the last time

l saw you swim

I know how to swim

you think I don't?

That day will come and I'll catch that fish

even if I have to catch itwith my bare hands

Ok, whatever

So, whowould you give it to?

- Do I have to give it to someone?

-Yes, to someone you love

When you're in love

you give what you have to them

Just like Hajj Mahmoud

That guy just sits playing

his oud all day

My mother says that he's been

like that since his wife died

He loved her so much

that his life ended with hers

- How does someone know if they're in love?

- Everybody falls in love

-And you're Mr. know-it-all?

- Of course

- You also love

- Me?

-Who do I love?

- Don't you love your Mom and Dad?

Yeah, but they're my Mom and Dad!

- What else do you love?

- l love our neighborhood

l love football, my bike

l love our fridge

The cold sherbet and icicles

that my mother makes and no one buys

I love my father's laugh

lt's true that I drive my Mom insane

and she always gets mad at me

but I still love her

You still didn't explain...

How do you know if you're in love?

You feel like you can't take

your eyes omofher

Everything in you freezes

except your heart

Listen... don'tforget

towear red for the game

the other team will wear blue

- We'll kick their butts!

- Yes

But let's hope Salouh doesn't end up

breaking your nose again

l don't know what his problem is

Oh, very nice

Let me taste it!


But less salt

-And a justa pinch of black pepper

- I'll do that next time

Next time... I will teach you

how to make Molokhia

lt's a very nice

Egyptian dish... fabulous!

I wish I had a daughter like you

ButGodjustgave me thatbratofa son

Consider me your daughter, auntie
