Alexandria, 1798. As Bonaparte's expedition arrives, Egypt wonders if he is a saviour or an oppressor. Torn between the fierce nationalists and the intriguing ideas of the newly arrived French humanists, three young Egyptian brothers must choose their side. But when Bonaparte sheds innocent blood, even his own soldiers accuse him of abandoning his ideals.
