At different times and location in Egypt, both Christians and Muslims travel distances to celebrate their holy ones turning the towns into a big spiritual carnival (el Mulid). Although their journey is loaded with earthly hardships, it brings the true meaning of love, not only for God but real love of life. Through their told stories, four characters of different religious and economic backgrounds lead us physically to these Mulids and back, following their spiritual journey and moving forward.
