Construit en 1930 en plein coeur du Caire, l’immeuble Yacoubian est le vestige d’une splendeur révolue. Aujourd’hui, à travers les chemins des habitants qui s’y croisent, se dessine un portrait sans fard de l’Egypte moderne, où se mêlent corruption politique, montée de l’islamisme, fracture sociale, absence de liberté sexuelle et nostalgie du passé : le portrait d’une société complexe et colorée, surprenante et attachante.
