When Khaled returns to Alexandria after years of travel, he discovers that it is too late to rekindle a relationship with his old love, and with his aging father. Self absorbed, he roams the city and stumbles across the underground art and music scene.
He is mesmerized by the discovery of this world and his life gradually changes. Supporting the movement, he draws attention to the diverse facets of the city. Details of his private life and events of the movement overlap. He awaits an inevitable change that he believes will come from the dynamic and unique art scene in Alexandria, rather than from Cairo; the overpopulated capital.
The movie has received tremendous praise both locally and internationally as it was awarded the Golden Tulip Award in the Istanbul film festival, The Golden Tanit at the Carthage film festival, Best Arab Film at the Cairo International Film Festival and the award for the Best editing by Hisham Saqr at the Dubai Film Festival.
