Three stories take place over the course of a single day in Cairo. Lila, a retired actress, is looking for Sameh, her last co-star. Salma, is dating Wael and is in Wael’s friend’s apartment, after their marriage breaks down. Hazem is a young drug dealer on the run from Alexandria to Cairo and picks up an old man with Alzheimer’s disease. The six characters find themselves at decisive points of their lives, which although disparate, are brought together by destiny, and are brought out through pitch-perfect performances by Egyptian cinema’s legends.
The screening will be introduced by Dr Khalid Ali, clinical academic at Brighton and Sussex Medical School and 'The Screening Room' editor at "Medical Humanities- British Medical Journal"
Presented in association with CINECITY 'Adventures in World Cinema'
