Egypt's official entry for the 2014 Academy Awards, Factory Girl is the winner of over 15 cinema awards including 6 from the Egyptian Film Association 2015: Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Special Jury Award, Excellence Award for directing, Best Supporting Actress Award.

Hiyam, a young factory worker, lives in a lower-middle-class neighbourhood, along with her co-workers. She is clearly under the spell of Salah, the factory's new supervisor, who has expressed his admiration for her. She believes love can transcend the class differences between them. However, when a pregnancy test is discovered in the factory premises, her immediate family and close friends accuse her of sinning. Hiyam decides not to defend herself and pays an enormous price in a society that fails to accept independent women. FACTORY GIRL examines the changes that take place in her life over the four seasons of the year. From falling in love to facing heartbreak, her life comes around a full circle by the end of the year.
