In Hollywood, Ari Zucker is the stuff of legends, the man who always gets the impossible-to-film shots. In Cairo, however, he faces the most difficult and dangerous challenge of his career: he must photograph, from a helicopter mere feet away, the face of the imperishable Sphinx. The film depends on it. Caught in a web of intrigue and corruption, he must work with the military dictatorship to get the shot. This leads from baksheesh to blackmail and a whole lot more than Ari bargained for.
