Reporter Evan Williams and producer James Brabazon are some of the first journalists to film inside the ghetto where they live with garbage stacked to the roofs of their multi-story homes - eking out a living recycling the rubbish by hand. It's a sight rarely seen by outsiders. This group is unique for another reason. They're part of Muslim Egypt's Christian minority; a community besieged by persecution, extremism and a creeping iIslamization in Egypt's security services. The team highlights one the most sensitive issues faced by some of those in Egypt - their decision to convert to Christianity - a decision that many Muslims believe should be punishable by death under a strict interpretation of Islamic Sharia religious law.
