Coming forth by Day

Hala Lotfy  |  Cinema  |  2008  |  Egypt
The film follows 24 hours in the life of frustrated Cairo women, Soad and Hayat, looking after their incapacitated father/husband in their stuffy, frowzy Cairo apartment that plays a central role in reflecting the characters’ psyche as well as channeling Lofty’s social commentary on loneliness, solitude, and poverty.
