"This is bravura filmmaking with a kick-in-the-gut message about chaos and cruelty (with some humanity). - Variety

Cairo, summer 2013, two years after the Egyptian revolution. In the aftermath of the dismissal of Islamist President Morsi, a day of violent riots ensues. This Feature narrative is entirely shot from within one paddy wagon, where pro-army supporters and Brotherhood members are and brought together by their inevitable fate during the turmoil. Will they overcome their differences to get by?
