    • In a Cairo suburb, when a trick of a Magician goes wrong at Mando’s birthday party, an avalanche of absurdities befall the boy’s family. The magician transforms the authoritative father into a chicken and fails to bring him back. The mysterious transformation of the father sets the family off to a tragically funny adventure to attempt to bring Sami back and to survive without the patriarch. Rasha, the pregnant mother, who has always relied on her husband will transform into the protector of her family. Ramadan, the older teenager brother, is forced to grow up and fill his father’s shoes while figuring out why he is attracted to men and dealing with puberty. Mando, resorts to religion to bring his dad back but gives up when his prayers are not answered. When the father ends up coming back in a violent zombie-like state, will they choose the father in the human form or the chicken? Father of a Father is a timely allegorical dark comedy about authority in post revolution Egypt.
