On a hot summer's day, in a Cairo taxi the paths of Shawky and Doa cross. He's a frail old man suffering from cancer on his way to a foreign specialist. She's making the final arrangements for her wedding that evening. A friendship develops between these two people at completely different stages of their lives. In the summer heat of the congested, dusty metropolis, they spend a day together and discover their lives anew. A tragi-comic story and a portrait of a megacity on the brink of asphyxia.
