Poster - Kroka

All the theatres around the town are controlled by the Brown Suits Committee; an old-fashioned greedy middle-aged group, led by Mr. Ameen. Yomna, a young passionate theater-enthusiast, guides a group of actors into a revolutionary play to prevent Mr. Ameen from taking control of the last theater, the theater she works in, after witnessing that Khalil, the theater owner had sold himself to become a Brown Suits member. A series of confrontations and conflicts occur during the show in many sections of the theater between Yomna and Khalil over the importance of stopping the play as it is provoking Mr. Ameen and the Brown Suits Committee. Will Yomna succeed at completing the show?
