Synopsis: It hasn’t been long since rich tourists from around the world stayed in the luxury hotels of Sharm El Sheikh. But the Arab Spring and the confusion of the post-revolutionary period quickly robbed the city of its charm as a go-to summer resort. Saturated with elements of surreal fiction, this documentary takes us to a shimmering city of ghosts to visit its last inhabitants - the employees who feverishly dream among the abandoned hotel suites.
