After giving up a promising career in museum management to attend to his ailing father, Ahmed spends his days managing the family's dying perfume business. This sacrifice and his divorce have made him cynical about human nature and this manifests itself in his relationship with Abdulrahman, his aloof 12-year-old son. Father and son do not see eye-to-eye, and it is as though they speak in different languages. Ahmed is also rather suspicious that his free-spirited sister is back from her travels in Europe to ensure she gets a nice chunk of the inheritance. Suddenly, Ahmed's ex-wife sues to deny him visitation rights, claiming she doesn't want her son to see his grandfather dying slowly.
Directed and written by Humaid Alsuwaidi, Musk stars Mohammed Ahmed, Suhail Aljneibi, Dhaen Juma, and Manahel Alawadi. The film is distributed worldwide by MAD Solutions.
