A heartwarming documentary
13 June 2019 | by mrspracticalSee all my reviews

A desire to expose Americans to Egyptian culture and promote civil discourse led the filmmaker to offer a free, all expenses paid trip. He had a hard time getting people to take him up on the offer but he eventually gathers a relatively diverse group and we get to come along for the ride.

My favorite part was his pairing of the various group members with their Egyptian guides and the variety of cultural activities they do. I especially like the time they spend in people's homes- really connecting with locals and not just the touristy things.

You'll see how hospitable, kind, fun-loving and compassionate the Egyptian people are.

No surprises that everyone involved grows from the experience.
