Many of us are seeking that special something that will transform our lives. Fin, an Irishman living in Cairo, is no exception. Sacked from his mediocre job on a mediocre newspaper, he sets off on the hunt for an elusive story that might just save him. With little more than a rumpled linen suit to his name, he searches for Farouk, the mercurial storyteller who alone knows what Fin wants to hear, but who has managed to get himself kidnapped. Fuelled by whisky and a thousand glasses of tea, Fin launches himself into the dusty delirium of the city.
