Drama / 1h 58m / Feature / Fiction
In the fading grandeur of downtown Cairo, Khalid, a 35-year-old filmmaker, is struggling to make a film that captures the pulse of his city at a moment when everything is about the change. Set just before the revolution in 2010, this film chronicles the recent years in the Arab world, where revolutions seemed to spark hope for change, but instead leave many questions. Khalid’s wandering through the city is interweaved with moments with friends who share footage and stories from Berlin, Baghdad, and Beirut, creating a powerful, multilayered meditation on togetherness, the tactile hold of cities, and the meaning of homeland.
