A political thriller based on a true story.
Weeks before the 2011 Egyptian revolution, Noredin, a police officer in Cairo's corrupt system, investigates the murder of a famous club singer at the Nile Hilton Hotel.
What initially seems to be a crime of passion turns into something that concerns the very power elite of Egypt.
Tarik Saleh's thriller is a refreshing and politically potent update of classic noir.
