Fayza, Seba and Nelly: three women from different socio-economic backgrounds are revolting against sexual harassment in Egypt. Victims against perpetrators: the misogynist machos will have to pay somehow! After a few incidents in bus 678, a dubious Inspector Essam leads an investigation. He faces sincere, nervous women who are weaving their common fight with passion.
Based on real events, scriptwriter Mohamed Diab’s first feature shows the courage and commitment it takes to reveal “(…) the psychological and social trauma that Egyptian women have suffered for generations” (Simon Foster)
“Uncompromising and thought provoking, Diab creates an urgent tale out of a serious but oft ignored issue. The female leads are fearless in their performances, painting characters that women all over the world will relate to, and the climax is both inspiring and invigorating. Though rough around the edges, 678 is an audaciously bold docudrama that is eye-opening, jaw-dropping and heartbreaking” (Kristy Puchko)
