Cairo, February 2011. Elsayed, Noha and Ahmed are young Egyptians and are participating in the revolution. They occupy the square day and night, with thousands of Egyptians, talk and sing about everything that they have not been able to say aloud before. Violent repression by the regime fans the revolt; the occupants of Tahrir square resist, learn how to argue and to throw stones, to invent slogans and care for the injured, to defy the army and to keep a territory that has been won-an area of freedom where they are drunk with words. Tahrir is a film written by the faces, hands and voices of those who spent these days and nights there. It is a daily chronicle of the revolution, made alongside the protagonists.
