Egypt is a centralized country and so it's hard for people who live away from the capital to find work opportunities especially in the field of journalism, art and human rights. Migrants is a film that tells the stories of young women who were able challenge the established traditions which do not accept the idea of them (as young women) living on their own, away from their families. They decide to leave their families (in upper Egypt and in Delta) and settle in Cairo on their own to fulfill their dreams notwithstanding the difficult financial and social circumstances.
