    Synopsis: When my father passed away in 2010, I felt extreme loneliness to the extent that suicidal thoughts prevailed. Nevertheless, I decided to live and try to find an exit within my household from this loneliness. I stumbled upon the radio, the important object which my father had left me in the house. The radio became my only companion and the music stations played the songs of my father Mohamed Hamza, the poet who composed lyrics for the greatest artists of the sixties like Abdel-Halim Hafez, Shadia, Warda, and many others. I've decided to make a film in an attempt to find Mohamed Hamza the father and the poet and to find him within the different places, eras and people he lived through.
