In this biting social commentary on Egypt s classist society, Director Hala Khalil chronicles the aftermath of the Tahir Square revolution on a young woman named Nawara who works as a maid for Egypt s elite. Between the alleys of the poor neighbourhood and the roads leading to the villas of the luxury compound, she goes back and forth between two worlds one of privilege, the other of poverty. Burdened by the worries of the people in her neighbourhood, the Spring of 2011 brings with it opportunities she never dreamed would be possible.
