    • Synopsis
    • HASAN is a Jordanian police chief with the world at his feet. He’s a powerful man at work, and a proud husband awaiting the birth of his first child. But his world is torn apart when his pregnant wife, AMAL, is kidnapped two days before she’s due to give birth. Hasan realizes the kidnappers are no other than ALI and HUDA; the two petty scoundrels whom he took pity on and saved from a life of poverty and destitution.
      Ali and Huda never call to demand a ransom, and Hasan soon realizes that this kidnap is related to a dark family secret. Ali is taking revenge for a crime that Hasan committed 20 years ago.
      If the secret is exposed, then Hasan’s reputation and career will be in jeopardy. But time is running out and there is no easy solution; he can either save himself, or his family.
