In a city of 20 million people, 23,600 miles of road, and two million cars, Cairo’s taxis, buses, donkey carts, and swarms of people all navigate the obstacle course that is their daily lives. From its streets, this documentary explores the life of one of the world’s most populated cities. Shot before and during the Egyptian revolution, and ending with the most recent presidential elections, the film uncovers the country’s collective identity, inherent struggles, and the sentiments leading through current historic changes.
