Kairo, 2009. 35-year-old filmmaker Khalid is trying to shoot a film that would capture the soul of the city. Meanwhile, he’s also facing loss in his own life. With the help of friends who provide him with impressions of city life in Beirut, Baghdad and Berlin, he finds the strength to navigate through the trials and beauty of life in “the last days of the city”.
