5th Festival of Luxor, LAFF, Egypt, 2016
Gaston, a hard worker and honest man, is on the verge of poverty. To provide for his family with dignity, he takes his chances with mutual funds, loans, and borrowing. Then one day, as he’s returning home, Gaston is mobbed and stripped of everything. Relentlessly, he goes after his attackers. As he delves into the troubled realm of organized crime, he discovers another side of life: crooked civil servants, corruption, conspiracy, drug trafficking, the code of silence that governs the streets… In the midst of it all, Gaston will lose those he loves and become embroiled in an underground world of no return.
