Cairo 2011 - The Arab Spring - 30 million residents are waiting… waiting for something to happen.  Noredin is the everyday corrupt police detective who makes his money accepting bribes from street vendors and landlords. By routine, he extorts money from the local criminals. Under the influence of drugs and alcohol, he still functions in a system on the brink of collapse.  One night he is assigned a murder investigation. A singer has been found dead at the Nile Hilton. What initially seems to be a “crime of passion” turns into something even more sinister that concerns the very power elite of Egypt.
