When a young Egyptian woman travels from her village to Cairo to add her voice to the tens of thousands of Egyptians demanding an end to 60 years of military rule, she is arrested, beaten, and tortured by security forces and later punished and imprisoned by her family for daring to speak out.
Unbreakable, she sets out in search of freedom and social justice in a country torn by power struggles, where there is little tolerance for the likes of her.
