Egypt, 2011: this is a revolution. On the streets of Cairo, a violent uprising is transforming the course of history. Mariam and Khalil, two young activists, are swept up in the fervour. Their lives will never be the same again.

The City Always Wins captures the feverish intensity of the 2011 Egyptian revolution – from the euphoria of mass protests, to the silence of the morgue – piercing the bloody heart of the uprising.
