Cairo, 2011. The Boiling Point. 30 million residents are waiting… waiting for something to happen.
Noredin (Fares Fares) is the everyday corrupt police detective who makes his buck accepting bribes from street vendors and landlords. By routine, he extorts money from the local criminals. Under the influence of drugs and alcohol, he can still function in a system that is on the brink of collapse.  One night he is assigned a murder investigation. A singer is found dead at the Nile Hilton. What initially seems to be a “crime of passion” turns into something that concerns the very power elite of Egypt.

„I knew that when I wrote “The Nile Hilton Incident” I was asking for trouble. It’s a little bit like dating a serial killer. But I could have never, in my wildest imagination have known how crazy this production would turn out. I am very glad that no one died. The fiction of “The Nile Hilton Incident” was constantly crashing into reality. At times it scared me, but to be honest, this is why I do this - to make my dreams come true. To me the film is about a city that I love. It’s about the past and the future colliding - and the people that get crushed in the process.“
