In a run-down apartment building in downtown Cairo, engineer Zaki Pasha (Adel Imam) and his sister, Dawlat (Issad Younis), live off an inheritance from their father. Another prominent building resident, business magnate Haj Azzam (Nour El-Sherif), hides his second wife while pursuing a career in the Egyptian parliament. Their relatively well-off lives intersect with many others in the building, who struggle with corruption, sexual harassment and general social instability.
