Wadood is a police sergeant who wants to pursue his dream of earning a law degree so he can get a promotion. His wife, Radeya, a working woman, convinces him to take night classes, but dies of cancer a few months later. The four young children rush to rescue their poor father by secretly taking after-school jobs. Gaber winds up at a gas station, Mo’en at a flower shop, and the two girls, Nora and Ghazal, at a restaurant. The children also decide to huddle together in one room of their small apartment to free the second one to rent out.
