The Aquarium
(Genenet al asmak)


The Aquarium

Winter in Cairo. Laila is a radio speaker. Her program « Night Secrets » is successful among people who want to know about the love lives of others without revealing their own. Youssef is an anaesthesiologist. He likes to listen to his patients in their delirium. His father is dying of cancer. At night, Youssef works in a seedy abortion clinic. Laila and Youssef don’t know each other. Both hide behind other people’s secrets.
