Beginning with Nasser hearing the news that his father is dying, he takes his headphone-sporting adolescent son Waleed back to his small, rural hometown, a place of strictly upheld customs. The drastic change of environment puts their relationships to the test. This tense conflict between father and son plays out across three generations, painting a wider picture of the deepening divide reshaping Saudi society. As the tale explores the shifting values of patriarchy and tradition, Nasser finds himself between two worlds. Through the alienation and self- awareness of the younger generation, 'Last Visit' considers what is inherited and what has been acquired beyond the confines of the home. The debut feature from film critic and producer Abdulmohsen Aldhabaan is a subtle exploration of transforming bonds, discovering what endures to bind three different generations.
