Reda, call my family

and tell them I'm OK.

- Lower your voice.

- Reda, help us.

You're too loud.

Can I use the phone?

Can Haj Salah and

I make one call?

His wife just gave birth.

We want to tell our

families that we're OK.

Sorry, the battery is low.

If Adam calls the US embassy,

they can get us out.

I don't want to be

saved by Americans.

It's official?

America endorses the MB?

Let him call the embassy.

Even if I did,

they would only help me.

My uncle's a general.

I also have a friend

who can get us out.

No, let him call his uncle,

the general.

Who would your

dad call anyway?

Generals have power.

What about the officer?

I'll cover.

- Make it quick.

- Hello, Mum.

Listen to me. I was mistakingly

arrested at a protest.

Doesn't matter how.


Call Uncle to get me out.

You mean get "us" out.

All of us, Auntie!

There are others.

I'm using their phone.

Tell Uncle about them, too.

I'm all right.

Yes, I ate.

I swear.

The phone's broken.

- You can't hold a phone.

- Sorry.

Damn you, Fisho,

and your damn protests.

Your first protest and this happens?

You're bad luck.

Shut up.

It's not you,

Egypt is bad luck.

It's none of your

damn business.

It's not working.

I can fix it.

- Can you?

- It's my job.

He works at my mobile shop.

He can fix it.

Will your uncle get us out?

Yes, yes.

God bless you.

It's your mum.

Tell her to call once

she has news.

Call only if you manage something.

Thank you.

- Get down, Fares.

- I got him.

One of us has to be responsible.

You could have got help.

You dragged him into this mess.

We took him to the revolution.

- Now isn't the same.

- Enough, Mum.

- Then why did you come?

- I won't leave my son alone.

- Alone? He's with his father.

- Fares come here.
