Magazine editor Juliette, has just landed in Egypt’s capital to join her diplomat husband, Mark. But when she arrives at the hotel, she discovers he has been sent to the Palestinian refuge camps, his return time uncertain. That’s when she meets Mark’s old friend Tareq, who owns a coffee shop. Out of her natural element and culture shocked, Tareq becomes Juliette’s guide to Cairo. They enjoy each other’s company and before long, have mutual feelings that cannot be ignored… Stunningly shot, this film flows like a distant dream in which a way forward is possible despite the sadness over what is left behind.
