Cairo's security forces are a constant presence on the streets of this ancient city. For the youth practicing Parkour there is always the risk of harassment and arrest if the police mistake them for political activists and troublemakers. In this episode the group of young freerunners are mistaken for a political gathering and taken into custody. Taking a break from their sport, they explain how they evade the restrictions imposed during the current crackdown and maintain their freedom to practice their skills on the streets.
