A real-time, cinéma vérité-style chronicle of the two most exciting weeks in the history of modern Egypt. Together with thousands of other citizens, Noha, Ahmed, and Elsayed have been involved in a massive movement of street protest for political freedom. Day after day, sleepless night after sleepless night, until the capitulation of the defeated pharaoh, the film follows these young and unexpected heroes and their shattering fight to attain freedom.
