Synopsis:
Youssef, a taxi driver, barely gets by. Not that he seems to particularly mind, until he learns that he must undergo a surgical operation, one that he can hardly afford, to have a chance at saving his own life, within four days, by “the last Friday.” We observe Youssef and wonder, Is there ever enough time to live?
