Abstract

This is the story of an incredibly unique reality show! Sadek, Hind, Abdellah and Ahmed, from different parts of the Arab world, were filmed over the course of a few weeks before the events that led up to the revolution of “Jasmine”. These kids have been for months confined to a loft that is comparable to that of Pop Idol. In short, all the ingredients are there for an adrenaline-injected reality TV program broadcasted in 13 Arab countries. Through these characters as endearing as energetic, we find a generation that is being born, a generation that wants to shake up the Arab Muslim world!
