Shaza Moharam  |  Cinema  |  2011  |  Egypt
‘Ahlam’ is a seemingly average Egyptian girl. While her family thinks she works at the airport, Ahlam serves tables in a cabaret. She keeps her job a secret from her relatives and neighbors to avoid being stigmatized. Ahlam does not care much for politics, yet she cannot help but notice the people’s revolt. Walking into a cheering crowd, she senses for the first time that she is part of something. While people of her status are often ignored, Ahlam feels the Egyptian revolution belongs to her too, not just to the well-groomed and the righteous.
