The movie examines life in the suburbs of Egypt. It focuses on a small village affected by social inequality and a corrupt regime. The role of government is not apparent whereas landlords and rich businessmen appear as unrestrained criminals. To survive, the villagers sell unusual services such as witchcraft. One lady opens a gentlemen's club. The village is timeless with the only dating feature being the train line.
