Plot Summary from IMDB: "Egyptian film director Yehia encounters his
first love Ginger as he was being celebrated in New York. Back then
they were 19 years old. The American Dream was the thing of the 20th
century. Yehia, the boy from Alexandria, and Ginger, the American gal,
were students at Pasadena Playhouse.40 years later, they are back
together but the world has changed and the American Dream is no longer
what it used to be. Yehia finds out that he had begotten an American
child, a boy. Through a boisterous epic in which heroes love, sing,
dance, laugh and cry, Youssef Chahine reconsiders his past and his
ambiguous relationship to America which he loved so much. Written by
