Forty-year-old Youssef is released after five years of solitary imprisonment. In Alexandria, he meets Ibrahim and Fady, with whom he shared the same prison 20 years ago. The three are united with the film’s other characters in their desire to strive for a better life, despite the terrible circumstances around them. The question is: Will they succeed?
