The live-television singing competition Arab Idol has been wildly popular in the Middle East for a few years now, but the 2013 rise of Mohamad Assaf from wedding singer in Gaza to Arab Idol winner was so incredible that it captivated millions and became a worldwide sensation. Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad was among the thousands who sat in cafés and open courtyards watching Assaf's ascent through the final stages of the contest, and the enthralling experience inspired him to imagine the childhood origins of this phenomenal story.
