It's Nothing Nagy, Just hang up!
It’s the Holy Week in Egypt. As the quarantine is still imposed, the local Coptic communities have decided to use the virtual world to carry on their annual rituals. In the meantime, Youhanna tries to teach his grandmother how to use modern-day technology to stay in touch with her friends during the lockdown. The prayers are performed online, although affected by the uneven internet connections. Youhanna’s only escape is the online video calls with his friends. Reflecting on the global situation that has suspended all social activities around the globe, he starts to document his ordinary day-by-day life.
