The Egyptian revolution was not just about the desire to change the political system. It was -most importantly- the expression of the accumulation of decades of oppression, deception, insecurity, violence, inefficiency and depression. Before the revolution attempts to place audiences in that emotional and intellectual moment, portraying the stagnation before an inevitable eruption.
