Brief synopsis

Koka’s world revolves around one simple and well-known bird: the pigeon. As a respected figure in Cairo’s pigeon fighting world, Koka devotes his time to training and caring for hundreds of pigeons in his self-built wooden tower. Under immense pressure from his conservative community to quit his passion, Koka is faced with the possibility that his pigeon fighting days may be coming to an end.
