Night Courier

Mandoob is an impressive film that shows a different image of Riyadh (the capital of Saudi Arabia), far removed from the glossy image that is often presented. The film follows the life of Fahad Algadaani, who finds himself on the brink of a mental breakdown due to financial and societal pressures. His life takes an unexpected turn when he starts working as a delivery boy, or 'mandoob'. A chance encounter leads him into the city's dark underbelly of illegal trade, leaving him faced with a dangerous choice that could solve his financial problems or cost him everything. The film is inspired by the rapid changes in Riyadh and their impact on its residents. It shows Riyadh as it is really lived, with all its inequalities, through the eyes of a man unprepared for the world he discovers behind the closed doors of underground clubs and private parties.
