A Coptic Christian priest (Imam) and a Muslim Sheikh (Sharif) who survive separate assassination attempts by extremists are forced to go on the run. The two strangers have never met before, but coincidentally they hide out in the same downtown Cairo apartment building and assume new identities, with Imam's character disguised as a Muslim and Sharif pretending to be a Christian. As a result of their switch, both get to understand how the two different communities honestly feel about each other.
