Adam, the son of a fisherman, is offered the ultimate privilege to study at the Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the epicenter of power of Sunni Islam. Shortly after his arrival in Cairo, the university’s highest ranking religious leader, the Grand Imam, suddenly dies and Adam soon becomes a pawn in a ruthless power struggle between Eqypt’s religious and political elite.

"Egypt’s religious and secular institutions both breed mistrust in Tarik Saleh’s superbly realised paranoid nightmare." – The Guardian

"An implacable, hilarious, pamphlet film as fine as it is courageous. Exciting from start to finish." – Paris Match

"Complex, gloomy and brilliant Boy from heaven mixes the codes of espionage, meeting secrets and other filings, in an atmosphere of ancient drama." – Les Echos
