gets a new look !
Egyptian film director Yehia encounters his first love Ginger as he was being celebrated in New York.
Back then they were 19 years old. The American Dream was the thing of the 20th century. Yehia, the boy from Alexandria and Ginger the American gal were students at the most prestigious Institute of Dramatic Art, California. They had pledged to love each other for ever.
40 years on they are back together but the world has changed and the American Dream is no longer what it used to be. They are poles apart but not quite though … for Yehia finds out that he had begotten an American child, a boy.
Through a boisterous epic in which heroes love, sing, dance, laugh and cry, Youssef Chahine reconsiders his past and his ambiguous relationship to America which he loved so much
