Modelled loosely on the work of Abbas Kiarostami, this is a 5-min fiction flick about the resurgence of the Egyptian Revolution on 19-21 November, 2011. The phone conversation (of which the viewer hears only one side) mentions, with frightening nonchalance, the brutal effects of "confrontations" - near Tahrir Square and elsewhere - with Central Security and Military police: broken limbs, loss of eyesight in one or both eyes, suffocation... Ambiguous as the ending remains, the speakers have not given up on freedom. The film was shot by Heba El-Nahhas, conceptualized, edited and provided with the soundtrack - with improvised dialogue - by Youssef Rakha.
