Set in the Upper Egyptian village of Karnak against the backdrop of the British campaigns in Sudan, the Second World War, and the war in Palestine. The Collar and the Bracelet tells the saga of the Bishari family – a family ripped apart by the violence of history, the dark conduits of human desire, and the rigid social conventions of village life.
