Taken from AWARE site:

This Wednesday, May 9, 2007, the AWARE Center will be showing the Kuwaiti film, “Bas ya bahaar“. It is a story about a mother who only has one son. Set in the past when all the young men would go to sea this mother prevented her son from going for fear of losing him. Eventually he does go to sea, diving for pearls. This film covers a lot of traditional Kuwaiti culture and gives an insight into Kuwaits past. Come along to enjoy not only the film but to experience Kuwaiti culture as well as gain a better understanding of how the Kuwaitis lived up to and including the first half of the 20th century.
