Journey from the land of the pharaohs into the living soul of modern Egypt. The program glimpses the lives of six Egyptians—including a Bedouin healer, a Coptic Christian monk, a Cairo delivery boy, and a Western-style publisher—to uncover the roots of one of the oldest nations in the world. Traveling from the rugged beauty of the Sahara Desert to the languid waters of the Nile, this program explores the Islamic heart of a nation where the roots of Christianity still run deep, and takes the modern pulse of the country on the bustling streets of Africa’s biggest city, Cairo. 96 minutes.
