Middle-aged Guled, a struggling gravedigger living in the slums of Djibouti city, is working hard to make ends meet. His beloved wife Nasra, who suffers from a chronic kidney disease, desperately needs a transplant. Otherwise she will die. An appropriate donor is found, but it’s not the end of the struggle – in order to buy the kidney, Guled should be able to collect in only two weeks as much money as a gravedigger normally earns in a year...
