After two years of dwindling tourism numbers the inhabitants of Luxor are struggling to survive. But instead of giving in and giving up, they continue to care for the ancient monuments that tell the timeless stories of a civilisation long passed.

Hopeful for a better future they undertake restoration work at the Luxor temple so when the tourists will come back to visit the wondrous temples and tombs they will be ready.
