Escaping from prison amid the turbulence of the 2011 Tahrir Square demonstrations, a nameless fugitive (Asser Yassin) desperately seeks warmth and shelter in the outer regions of Cairo.

Featuring interactions with the real-life inhabitants of Hay al Zabaleen, Al Sayeda Aisha and some of Cairo’s poorest slums, the film tells the untold stories of the people whom the revolution never reached. It deromanticizes the Egyptian Revolution and examines the fallout from the Arab Spring by looking at the desperate living conditions of Cairo’s most marginalised communities. Abdalla emphasizes that his film “isn’t about the revolution. It is about the conditions [that the Egyptians] lived under, and still live under.”

This film won the Golden Antigone prize at the 35th Cinemed International Mediterranean Film Festival of Montpellier.
