Storyline

The setting is Cairo in June of 1945, during the last days of the Second World War.

Assigned to the murder case, police inspector Nour El-Din stays on Gohar's trail hoping for a confrontation and confession of the crime. In this remarkable adaptation of the novel by Albert Cossery, both the detective and the criminal are faces with startling realizations as one closes in on the other. Written by Ryan Davis, AFD
