Film details


When Khaled returns to Alexandria after years of travel, he discovers his attempts to rekindle a relationship with an old love and repair his relationship with his ageing father are both futile. His life turned upside down, he now aimlessly roams the water-bound city until he stumbles upon Alexandria's underground music scene, a secret world filled with hip-hop singers who perform on sidewalks, female rock musicians on rooftops, and graffiti artists who confront the city with their shocking murals, created in the darkness of the night.
