A slow-burning absurdist comedy, The Last Friday follows Youssef, a down-on-his-luck taxi driver whose lonely life changes suddenly when he learns he must have a testicular operation immediately.

Youssef finds himself reaching out to estranged family members and friends, both for the money and to salvage what’s left of his life.
