An Un-Aired Interview

## ## ## ##

Tune in to the life of Ibrahim, an Egyptian man who suffers from success syndrome like most Egyptians, yet does not have any power… and find out why this interview was not and never will be aired.
Ibrahim, a waiter in a local Egyptian coffee house, is interviewed for an obscure television show called ‘Struggle and Success’. Jumping off from outtakes of the interview, the film delves deep into Ibrahim’s life to see who he really is, his political views, how he deals with the women and children in his life, and what his take is on what he calls the conflict between men and woman in general.
