Cairo, today. Many stories, many people and many aspirations. Eleven-year-old Shams dreams of a visit to the glittering centre of town. Her father Ramadan is
overworked as a taxi-driver and chauffeur of millionaire Selim Bey, whose bankruptcy is immanent. Ramadan’s nephew Omar wants to emigrate to Italy while the doctor Mariam studies the relationship between cancer and uranium radiation. The film was shot without a script, directly on location with lay actors, putting it on the index in Cairo.
