It was 1967, Egypt was fresh out of war and its youth hungry for inspiration as thousands danced their nights away to ‘Les Petits Chats’ playing the romantic tunes of the West. In 2009 the now-celebrity band members, such as acclaimed composer Omar Khairat and movie-star Ezzat Abu Ouf, attempt to retie the band’s fellowship that has been broken for 40 years and revisit a nostalgic state of mind of hope in a society that was unconcerned with culture and on the verge of revolution.
