    Abo Dya is a fugitive from Amman who lives in Gneyya, a small village in northern Jordan. He resides there with his wife and son Dya, and they are expecting their second child to be born in the coming weeks. Abo Dya is one of the Jordanian workers hired for a Spanish archaeological expedition which has become a primary source of income for the villagers. The working conditions are arduous, and the relationship with their foreign employers is becoming increasingly tense. The only realistic solution Abo Dya sees is to return to Amman, which his family is unwilling to do because of the risk of returning to his criminal past.
