"A unique and very timely film." — Dr. Mary Stroll, Historian, U of California, San Diego

"Very well done...Kamal-Eldin lets the film speak for itself without patronizing the subjects or slanting the camera in a particular direction." — Dr. Alice Swensen, Professor emerita, University of Northern Iowa

Tania Kamal-Eldin’s (Hollywood Harems, Covered, and Cairo Chronicles) latest documentary juxtaposes the daily lives of two Egyptian boys from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Abdallah is a single child living with his mother in Cairo and Islam lives with a large family at his village oasis. Islam’s stronger connection to nature and family is contrasted with Abdallah’s sedentary lifestyle and preoccupation with digital devices. Unlike Islam, Abdallah has a strong identification with Western culture in his demeanor, interests, and education. Both boys dislike school and love dogs, and aspire to visit America one day.
