It hasn’t been so very long since rich tourists from around the world came to stay in the luxury hotels of Sharm El Seikh. But the Arab Spring and the confusion of the post revolutionary period quickly robbed the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula of its charm as a go-to summer resort. Saturated with elements of surreal fiction, the documentary takes us to a shimmering city of ghosts to visit its last inhabitants -resort employees who feverishly dream among the abandoned hotel suites.
