EGYPTIAN EARTH

Synopsis

Egypt in the 1930s: A 12-year-old boy returns from his school in Cairo to find his village torn apart by feud and fear. The local schoolmaster, Sheikh Hassouna, urges the villagers to rebel against the tyrannical rule of the corrupt local government officials. But it takes many attempts - some disastrous, others comical and touching - before they join forces and stand against their oppressors.
