Storyline

The story is about two young men selling clothes in the street who are chased by the police and have their commodities confiscated. To pay back their boss they undertake a job to return to her a petty LE5,000 -- the "dead money" of the title -- which another thug had never paid back. This simple story of greed is reminiscent of Geofrey Chaucer's Canterbury tale about the three friends with the moral: "Radix malorum est cupiditas" or "Greed is the root of all evil." The plot takes several twists and is highly stylized with a frantic pace which conveys the dog-eat-dog way of life. Written by Mohamed Elassyouti
