An Egyptian cop tries to unravel a murder mystery in the days before the country's 2011 revolution. Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.

Cairo police detective Noredin Mustafa is an ordinary corrupt cop. He's handed the case of a singer found murdered in a Nile Hilton hotel room and soon discovers the dead woman's secret relationship with the hotel owner - a wealthy developer and member of parliament. While searching for the only witness, an undocumented Sudanese maid, he's abruptly ordered to close the case. But Noredin continues, and the investigation leads to an 'untouchable' elite who runs the country, immune from justice.

Tarik Saleh's third feature film is a riveting Egypt-inflected noir with the requisite corruption, cynicism and smoking. Set on the eve of Egypt's 2011 uprising, it shrewdly twists the genre to examine political power, decadence, and life on the margins.
