Synopsis

When a young Egyptian woman travels from her village to Cairo to add her voice to the tens of thousands of Egyptian’s demanding an end to sixty years of military rule, she is arrested, beaten, and tortured by security forces and later punished and imprisoned by her family for daring to speak out. Unbreakable, she sets out in a search for freedom and social justice in a country in the grips of a power struggle, where there is little tolerance for the likes of her.
