The documentary highlights the growth of shaabi music which has been expanding most recently under the name mahraganat music (festivals music) in the heels of the 25th January revolution. Following the underground shaabi music scene, known as ’mahraganat’, the film focuses on the surge of popularity this genre received following the revolution; Oka, Ortega, and Wezza, three of the movement’s most prominent artists, are suddenly put under the spotlight, so the question is: will they be able to preserve their identity as independent artists?
