Al Jumhurriya is a feature film based on the screenplay by Mehyar Abou Matouk.
Al Jumhurriya is based on true events in an unnamed part of the Middle East where, Kamal, the Head of the Secret Service finds himself horrified by what’s he become: a corrupt, immoral, mafia-like bull of a man who has turned against family and loved ones. Can he make the rights decisions now, or is it too late?
Against a backdrop of civil unrest, brutal torture and oppression, Kamal rises through the ranks of the authoritarian state, going from being one of the oppressed to a top-tier member of the regime. He now represents everything he once stood against.
