A young Egyptian filmmaker narrates this highly personal account of his interaction with a group of Cairo policemen over a period of three years, from the outbreak of the Egyptian Revolution until the removal of President Mohamed Morsi. As he gradually gains the policemen's trust, they begin to share with him their stories of corruption and abuse within the security forces. They also express their hopes and fears about the direction the country is headed as the political landscape undergoes turbulent change. The film reveals not only why police injustice was considered a leading cause of the 2011 revolution, but also how the perpetuation of injustice within the security forces itself led to widespread dissatisfaction among the lower ranks. With the policemen frequently blaming "the system," the filmmaker is forced to confront the men with questions of morality and guilt.
