SYNOPSIS
A social drama, the film is the story of lost love in a controversial setting; Zaki, Mounir and Manal are in their twenties, and living in a confined community where basic needs are met yet chaos and disorder brew. The two boys are in love with the same girl who finds herself the subject of a bet for a football match between them, the winner marries Manal.

Quotes
“A gently subversive metaphor for the current state of the country and while it wears its heart well and truly on its filmic sleeve its strong performances and unusual backdrop set it apart from other recent Egyptian film output.” ScreenDaily - Mark Adams

“With an edgy, modern style, Nadine Khan offers a pleasurably unexpected view of Egyptian society as a closed circuit world.” The Hollywood Reporter - Deborah Young

“Aptly billed as a "social fantasy," Nadine Khan's debut, "Chaos, Disorder," reps an intriguing vision of a community cut off from the outside world and controlled via irregular truckloads of necessities.” Variety - Jay Weissberg
