The journey of an ambitious pharmacy graduate who shifts his career and starts a farming business at Kilo 64 off Cairo-Alexandria desert road. Moved by the spirit of the January 25 Revolution, Wael El-Shenawy, 24, starts an agriculture startup with the aim to make a social impact and contribute to the Egyptian economy, but not everything goes as planned. Filmed over two years, 'Kilo 64' is a tale of two generations as it follows the journey of the young entrepreneur who finds himself in the same situation his father witnessed when he started a farming business on the same land 20 years ago. A simple personal story that tells a lot about what happened in Egypt for decades.
