A glimpse of Egyptian society as seen through the inhabitants of one of Cairo's oldest buildings. Based on the best-selling Egyptian novel, director Marwan Hamed shines a light on the diverse social stratas evident in Egyptian society, through the lives of the people who live in a luxury apartment building - originally built in the 1930s, but whose grandeur is now fading. With a broad range of narratives and characters, the film tackles sensitive issues such as Islamic-fundamentalism, homosexuality and corruption with a humorous touch.
