The Nile Hilton Incident (15)

Egyptian drama The Nile Hilton Incident

Based on a true story, this thriller tells the story of murder and corruption in Cairo in the weeks before the Egyptian revolution.

A political thriller based on a true story. Weeks before the 2011 Egyptian revolution, Noredin (Fares Fares), a police officer in Cairo's corrupt system, investigates the murder of a famous club singer at the Nile Hilton Hotel.

There’s only one witness to the crime, an immigrant cleaning lady (Mari Malek), who saw both the killer and the singer’s wealthy boyfriend. What initially seems to be a crime of passion turns into something that concerns the very power elite of Egypt.

Upon realising this, Noredin decides to break the rules in order to obtain justice, colliding not only with the system but also with himself.
