Mahmoud’s life is a ‘photocopy’ of millions of others. He worked as a data-entry typist in the same government job, never married, he lives a traditional life. When he settles for early retirement, he buys a nearby Storefront and sets up: “Mahmoud’s photocopy.” Here, he makes photocopies and types up documents. One day, a student asks him to type up a report on the extinction of dinosaurs. Mahmoud can’t help but begin to see some strange parallels with the state of his own life. Driven by a desire to change the depressing reality that his own lifestyle is becoming extinct, he starts a journey that leads him to revolt against his traditional life.
