Abdel-Rahim, a local tour guide married with 2 kids, wants to connect with a foreign woman to help secure his future. Abdel, like many others, meets women online, and hopes to convince them to move to Luxor. It is through an online platform that he connects with an older German / American woman, Monica. After a few months of online romance, she falls for him, moves to Luxor and promises to take care of him. The film follows these three women as they leave their lives behind to travel to a mysterious new world; one that blurs the boundaries between business and romance.
