Cairo police detective Noredin Mustafa is an ordinary corrupt cop. He’s handed the case of a singer found murdered in a Nile Hilton hotel room and soon discovers the dead woman’s secret relationship with the hotel owner—a wealthy developer and member of parliament. While searching for the only witness, he’s abruptly ordered to close the case. But Noredin continues, and the investigation leads to an “untouchable” elite who runs the country, immune from justice.
