Twenty years after the revolution, a young Egyptian, Shahed, toes the line between the country's two major factions: he is both a disciple of the national Sufi institute and a swimmer representing the Egyptian Armed Forces. During a nationwide military lockdown, Shahed is called by the army on a mission - he must transfer Sheikh Nizam, a jailed Sufi saint, from prison to a soldiers' barracks in the Sinai, where the sheikh is due to deliver a sermon. But alongside his official assignment, Shahed is engaged in a parallel operation on behalf of a rebel group to protest the army's oppressive rule over Egypt. Unsure of whom to trust, Shahed wades through murky tales of the past, grappling to find ways to revolt - for life and for freedom.
