Two small boys live with their sick grandmother in the mountains of the UAE. Tending their vegetables and then selling produce on the road, they have to earn enough money to buy medicine for her. This poignant film depicts their lives and the world in which they live. ‘Sabeel’ won the Second Prize in the Muhr Emirati Awards at the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) 2010.
