PART OF THE '18 DAYS' COMPILATION

The film revolves around a variety of Egyptian characters who are patients at a mental institution. We learn that some of them were forcefully confined to the hospital by security police forces. As the events of the revolution begin, the reactions of the different characters to the daily incidents and to each other’s opinions start being revealed. The position of the hospital administration also plays a key symbolic role.
