Aida, a struggling actress, came to Cairo from the Delta as a university student; like many others, she stayed on in the city. One night, she and her neighbour Samiha, a fading bourgeois beauty, are kicked out on the street. With no money and nowhere to go, the two women, aided by Yassin, a street-savvy youth, embark on a labyrinthine journey across physically and mentally difficult terrain. Amid the funny and at times disastrous turns their journey takes, they move along parallel journeys of self-discovery. An extraordinary friendship grows among the unlikely trio, like a delicate flower blooming from a thorny cactus.
