At the start of the film, we witness the death of the old 'Kabir el Gezira' (the island's ruler), leaving the land to his son Mansour. The first half follows Mansour as he takes control of his land and must deal with a band of other drug lords who are greedy to take control of the island.

yesterday i watched the movie, it was pretty good, almost 150 minutes long and i guess u'll never get bored, very fast actions, don't expect what's gonna happen because it'll not. I believed that there are some of these people live around, and how does the government deal with those people, Very powerful criminals who have there own judgment and there own rules, anyway, i hope you'll enjoy the crime-action-drama movie which is very well produced and directed and for the first time i can see Elsakka acting very well. my only comment about the dressings of Hend Sabry, it looks Scottish rather than Saeedy!! my only comment about the dressings of Hend Sabry, it looks Scottish rather than Saeedy!!
