Dir: Hala Khalil

Egypt/2016/122 mins/Arabic

Nawara works as a housemaid in the home of Ossama Bey and his family, who are closely linked to the Mubarak regime. As the revolution unfolds, they decide to leave the country temporarily. They give Nawara some money and ask her to look after the house while they are away. Nawara calls her fiancé Mustafa and tells him to find a house, now that she can afford it and takes to living in her employers’ villas as though she were the owner and discover the pleasures and pitfalls what it’s like to live like the rich at a dangerous time in the country’s history.

 “Hala Khalil … one of the bright new voices in Egyptian cinema, brings her light touch with social drama and keen feeling for women’s problems to Nawara.” Hollywood Reporter
