Set in the early chaos of revolutionary Egypt, Ramez tries to survive by holding on to normal life and rejecting all that is happening around him, including his friend’s arrest, his girlfriend’s disappearance, and the workers’ strikes that risk terminating the family business for which he is in charge. Meanwhile, Nahed is held in a military prison together with Ramez’s girlfriend where they await trial on accusations that remain unclear.
