The lead character Farida (Hend Sabry) is a professional photographer who happens to witness a bloody murder in one of Cairo’s high-end, exclusive hotels frequented by business tycoons and power spheres. The story progresses as Farida, who has become the sole witness of this horrific crime, begins her journey to escape with the only evidence to the crime – the photographs she took with her own camera that evening. Threatening events in her life begin to unfold when Farida, adamant to discover who is behind the murder, treads on dangerous grounds, as she discovers that ‘high ranking officials’ in the country are presumably involved in the crime.
