When all the able men of a small Egyptian village migrate in search of wealth, Ahmed, on the threshold of adulthood, insists on staying behind in hopes of fulfilling his dream of climbing ""al-’alia,"" the tallest palm tree in the village. In the absence of the other men, however, the women soon look to Ahmed as the man of the village—a role he rejects and does his best to avoid. Nevertheless, he gradually accepts this gigantic responsibility. When the migrant men return, however, the village is thrown into turmoil.
