Karim is a security guard at a hotel. One of his duties is controlling the hotel at night on CCTV and not letting anybody drink alcohol in the yard, since it is forbidden by the Islamic law and punished with 80 whips. Karim’s boss tends to blame him for any different reason, so he takes this responsibility very seriously.
