Description - The Lodging House by Khairy Shalaby

A young student's dreams for a better future are shattered after he assaults one of his instructors for discriminating against him. From then on, he begins his descent into the underworld. Penniless, he seeks refuge in Wikalat Atiya, a run-down caravanserai that has become the home of the town's marginal and underprivileged characters, and becomes a part of the lodging house's community of rogues.
