The Tedious Tour of M
The Tedious Tour of M_Poster

Hend approaches the long forgotten, but much respected, novelist Mohamed Hafez Ragab in his simple apartment where he decided to seclude himself in the eighties. A filmmaker and a poet herself, she is intrigued by the fact that Hafez decided to voluntarily end his career at the peak, as he did not fit in white-collar society of writers in the metropolis.

Hend insists to investigate the reason behind this radical change in the path, to find out that there is a huge secret and that Ragab believes that he is doomed to never write again.
