Film synopsis: 
Adina tries to make a birthday for herself, but this is not an easy job for a lonely bus ticket saleswoman, living alone in the old apartment of her late parents. She finds an unusual way of spending the day, when she decides to call a professional party entertainer agency.The Birthday is a sincere and sensitive short film about the need to get close to someone and, at the same time, the impossibility of doing it. The motivation of the Abu Dhabi Film Festival Short Competition jury, who awarded this film with the 2nd Prize was: 'The jury found this film effectively acted and directed to express a young woman's sense of isolation, but there is a stubborn hope in despair which resonated with us.'
