film synopsis

In this social satire about class and misogyny, disillusioned Moe is a young Egyptian filmmaker burnt out by the commercial work he’s been getting. To make matters worse, his girlfriend has just broken up with him and his friend has been taken to prison for using what the courts deem inappropriate language. The show must go on, though, and Moe must head to the opposite side of town to edit his work. So begins a wild night that also works as a classic setup to a joke: a filmmaker, a cabbie and a prostitute walk into a diner… Chauffeured around by Mustafa — a devout, conservative Muslim — and joined by Toutou — a rambunctious lady of the night — over the course of the night, cool guy Moe comes face to face with a world far from his own, exposing him to how the other side lives.
