Synopsis

The unit filmed in Egypt for ten months since the beginning of the Revolution in January. A year later, protests continue, but the euphoria of Tahrir Square and its Egyptian Velvet Revolution have given way to a more sober realization that Egypt has a long struggle ahead to free itself of old power structures, entrenched elites, endemic corruption, and above all, widespread abuse of basic human rights. We follow five different characters from very different aspects of Egyptian society, all of whom have suffered State injustice since the revolution.
