The story begins in Cairo, January 25, 2013, the second anniversary of the revolution. An explosion of politically charged sexual assaults of women sweeps through Tahrir Square. After the public rape of her best friend and dozens other women that night alone, Samaher Alqadi begins to record the chaos around her. When Alqadi realizes during filming that she is pregnant, it is no longer just about the resistance of Egyptian women, but also about her own life – her childhood in Palestine and the question of what it means to be a woman and mother.
