A tense and sophisticated, plot-driven thriller. Adam, the son of a fisherman from a remote Egyptian fishing village, wins a scholarship to the prestigious Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the epicentre of power of Sunni Islam. Shortly after his arrival, the Grand Imam suddenly dies and we see, through innocent
Adam’s eyes, the ruthless power struggle between Egypt’s religious and political elite. A fascinating socio-political thriller which gives an insight into the motivations that lie behind their struggle for power. Banned in Egypt for daring to expose the corruption of both clerics and politicians. A great watch!
