"A poised and elegantly executed ensemble piece of understated, emotionally-nuanced brilliance." (Rotterdam Film Festival Guide)
When he hears his cousin is to sell their grandmother's land, Sharif gets on the first plane to Cairo. On arrival, he finds himself faced with old arguments and new decisions in a changing country.
