The aspiring young director Moe (Karim Kassem) is in the middle of an existential crisis – his film is underfinanced, his friends are being arrested and his dream projects cannot be accomplished. A taxi ride through Cairo opens his eyes and introduces him to a different side of the city. Together with the witty prostitute Toutou (Mona Hala) and the choleric taxi driver Mostafa (Sherif El Desouky) he manages to break free of his bubble, even if the first landing on the concrete of the nocturnal moloch is rough. In his fifth feature film Abdalla again portrays the struggle of young artists over expression and truth.
