Fatima, 30. is waiting to join her husband who migrated to France over a year ago to escape the misery which surrounds her in an underprivileged neighborhood. She has to deal with the absence of her husband, the lack of job and finances and the harmful environment that her naïve son, Mohammed, is immersed in.

Microphone is a sparkling mash-up of shooting styles that tells the story of Khaled, who returns to his native Alexandria after a long stay in the United States and becomes enmeshed in a thriving underground arts scene after he chances upon a cooperative of young musicians.
