"A Day for the Women" takes place over the course of 24 hours in a disadvantaged Egyptian neighborhood where a youth sports center decides to assign a "women-only" day by the swimming pool. Events unfold as the social, psychological and emotional consequences of this decision weigh on the women of the neighborhood.

A new swimming pool in town causes much chatter, particularly because Sunday has been announced as a day for women. Bringing together a diverse group of women from the small community is an unexpected equaliser - and no one is more excited than Azza, who dreams of wearing a swimsuit. Naturally, the men can't help but be curious - and find their own colourful way of protesting against the women's day. But there is also a darker undercurrent at play - Lula's brother is becoming more extremist in his views. A topical reflection on community, co-existence and freedom.
