Karim and his friend work as valets in front of one of McDonalds branches in EL-Manial district in Cairo. "El-Captain" as Karim calls him, is the Unicef supervisor who works with street children. Through his singing, Karim shows a new side of him that lightens the hardship of being a valet at such a young age in the streets of Cairo.
