“Everyday you can change another person’s life without ever knowing it”
A privileged young Emirati male at odds with his cultural identity and his less fortunate street friend.
A disillusioned Indian taxi driver who bears an uncanny resemblance to a famous Bollywood star.
A former Romanian ballet dancer now working as a flight attendant and searching for love and companionship.
Dubai will bring them together and their lives are about to change. In a city where ambition, growth and opportunity are all that matter, dreams can still come true. “City of Life” is an urban drama that tracks the various intersections of a multi-ethnic cast, examining how random interactions and their consequences can irrevocably impact another’s life.
A revelation for the region, “City of Life” is the first movie to be filmed in Dubai, analyzing the real life of an emerging multi-cultural society’s race, ethnicity and class divide.
