The film tells the story of a poor young man working on one of the rounds of the capital Sana’a selling Jasmine flowers that are known in Yemen as (Foll), but he wasn’t aware of what destiny had in store for him that day. A leader of an terrorist cell is working in recruiting poor young people to carry out terrorist operations.

He admires of the energy of the young man, when he sees him in the round and offers the young man a job and tempts him with money, and promises him that his dreams will come true.

Due to the difficult circumstances of the young man, he happily agrees to work with him. The leader of the armed gang gives him a suitcase that contains explosives and tells him to plant it somewhere crowded with people or police.

The young man takes the suitcase hesitantly and goes to a place crowded with innocent people and children, but when he sees them, he realizes that his employer is exploiting his predicament. He decides to not carry out the terrorist operation and tells the police about the armed gang and returns to his previous job.

The story shows that Yemenis want to live with honor, dignity and love of the homeland, even if that means continuing their struggle with poverty. They do not want to live in luxury at the expense of killing innocent people and the destruction of their beloved homeland.
