2013, Cairo. Two years after The Egyptian revolution of 2011, and the destitution of the islamist president Morsi, one day some dark incidents happen: really violent riots take place in the streets. Police locks in the back of a van, a group of really contrasted people: from different social backgrounds and with different political and religious beliefs. The group doesn't know if they will be able to overcome their differences to get away. Shot entirely in 8 meters in the backseat of a police van, the claustrophobia of the film makes it even more gruesome. Directed by the Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab ('678') which is always interested in social topics. The movie was part of the section 'Un certain regard' from the 2016 Cannes festival.
