Synopsis by Tom Vick

A whimsical comedy with a touch of tragedy, Egyptian director Youssef Chahine's Silence...We're Rolling features famed Tunisian singer Latifah as Malak, a pop star whose career and home life are fraught with troubles. Alfi (Ahmed Bedir), the screenwriter of what should be her next hit movie, has writer's block, and her husband has left her for her best friend. One night she meets Lamei, a handsome young man (Ahmed Wafik) who commences to woo her, but her friends and family are all convinced he's nothing but a charming con man out to get her money. Alfi, who also happens to be in love with Malak, conspires with her family to hatch a plot to expose Lamei's true intentions and show Malak who her true loved ones are.
