Synopsis:

A tragic story of betrayal, oppression and murder, set during the 2011 revolution.
Four characters live on a remote farm, away from political upheavals but, in a way, the events unravelling at the farm reflect what is taking place in the country.
The main character, Fatma, represents the struggle of Egyptians. She is torn between tradition, represented by her husband Hassan, the guardian of the farm, a need for rebellion and renewal represented by her lover Ali, Hassan's cousin, who escaped from prison, and the corruption and greed of the rich elite, symbolised by the owner of the farm, Mourad.
