The name in Arabic: Masr El Gedida is a pun, because, as mentioned above, it can be translated into: “New Egypt” and that's what the whole film is about: it tracks the story of five modern Egyptian youths in the course of one night. They are all spending their afternoon/ evening struggling to achieve something before the day ends, and they all fail to make any achievements. All their day's work ends up without being done, but with a vague promise to have it done the next day. This makes all the main characters do - for the next day - almost the same things they did during the day we're shedding light on in this film.
