Set against the backdrop of the Egyptian Revolution, the thriller features a police officer who investigates the murder of a woman. What initially seems to be a killing of a prostitute turns into a more complicated case involving the very elite of Egypt.
Towards the beginning of the film, Police Chief Kammal is watching TV, and says that Tunisia is going to pot (presumably because of the Arab Spring uprisings) and yet still beat Egypt at football. There was no international football match between the two countries around then, though there was a friendly shortly after. See more »

Very realistic movie with terrible sound directory
About the story line .. it's such important to say this movie describes the egyptian political society so close that i - for a while - thought that Noredin Mostafa is a real character ..
There is a fact that the idea of the main story line is real .. Suzanne Tamim was a charming but not widely known lebanese singer who was found dead in her appartment in Dubai in 2008 .. the investigators in Dubai have known the identity of the killer (Mohsen El Sokkary) who was an ex-cop in state security section (a section known for it's brutal ways in protecting the whole regime and always against the people of Egypt) .. later he confessed the murder after incitement by Hisham Talaat Mostafa who was a close member in the circle around Gamal Mobarak ..both Hisham and Mohsen faced trial in Egyptian court and put in prison for 15 yrs ..
The movie describes the Egyptian society and police corruption very well .. may be the fact is much horrifying .. this was one of the main causes of the glorious egyptian revolution in 2011 ..
The only critic to the film is the sound directory is so weak .. sometimes i found it so hard to hear the dialog ..
