Every day Nawara goes to work along a path that takes her between the alleys of her poor neighborhood and the roads that lead to the villas of the luxurious gated community. Working as a maid for Egypt’s elite, she travels between two worlds, and carries the burdens and simple dreams of the people in her neighborhood. In the aftermath of the revolution at Tahir Square, the social reality gets incrementally closer to the gated community, and all of a sudden Nawara finds herself at the center of Egypt’s social intrigues, stuck between two worlds. Nawara is an Egyptian drama about an ordinary person in the midst of great social changes.
