Storyline

In the bustling streets of Cairo, overflowed with people hurrying to their work, life advances in hectic rhythms. Traffic congestion, noise and buses crammed with men and women--this is usual for a big city on its way to progress. But, underneath this cloak of normality, a particular type of crime thrives in the small-scale world of public transportation--so subtle and elusive to the untrained eye--that seems, practically, nonexistent. Women of all ages, regardless of their attire, are sexually objectified and abused on a daily basis, silently tolerating the perverted needs of male passengers. Under those circumstances, how can a woman defend herself from their assaults; shield herself against the anguish and the shame of the repeated harassment, when a nation's male population remains untouched by this obscenity?

A engaging pragmatic story of fight against sexual harassment
20 July 2018 | by navdpSee all my reviews

A must watch for all pro and against '#metoo' campaigners. Technically the movie lacks depth, nevertheless the content and the intensity of the actors and the characters make it worth a watch.

The movie expresses very slightly the vague, delicate part of human nature which contributes to harassing the oppressed sex.

Scriptwriter Daib deserves praise for handling such an issue in a most emphatic way. All the actors get into the characters effortlessly.
