A young man from a small fishing village wins a scholarship to the prestige Al-Azhar University in Cairo – the most important Islamic academy in the world. Indivertible he finds himself amid a power struggle within the institute, between extremists and moderates, between those loyal to the government and those loyal to the faith. Boy from Heaven takes us on an entertaining tour of the tug-of-war between governmental institutions and the forceful negotiations they conduct over the essence of the country, but more than politics, thanks to the splendid script and cast, it is an initiation film about a hero who must navigate his life to where his heart lies.
