Hakeem and his son Abbas live in poverty. They also live in a region frequently targeted by drone strikes.

Camp is set for the night; a pause in the middle of a journey to make a crucial sale. During their humble meal, Abbas struggles to manage his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aggravated by the presence of drones overhead. Soon, two men will visit the camp of Hakeem and Abbas, and conflict ensues.

Drawing inspiration from the films of Laura Poitras, Werner Herzog, and Peter Weir, 'From the Sky' is a film about growing up in conflict, the cycle of retaliation, and the cost of peace.
