A young fisherman boy, Adam, gets a unique opportunity to study at Al-Azhar University in Cairo. It is a Sunni Muslim university with proud ancestry and great influence in the religious sphere of interest. When the head of the institution unexpectedly dies, Adam suddenly becomes a central piece of the puzzle in the internal power struggle that ensues – a power struggle that the Egyptian regime does everything to infiltrate.

Tarik Saleh (The Nile Hilton Incident) has been awarded the director’s prize in Cannes with the Swedish Oscar entry Boy From Heaven, a non-stop exciting political thriller in a rarely portrayed setting. Just like in The Nile Hilton Incident, Fares Fares has a central role, and in short stands for an excellent performance.
