Four stories, told out of chronological order like Arabian Nights, complement each other like a puzzle to reveal the circumstances that lead Sakr Abdel-Wahed to commit suicide. Starting from the story of a blind woman, whom the corrupt police try to force into working with them in drug dealing, this multi-threaded narrative contains several small stories that overlap through the relationships between the characters.
