Mariam Fakhreddine stars as a young woman of modest upbringing who discovers there is more to her family history than meets the eye. When a wealthy landowner passes away and is revealed as her true father, securing the inheritance she's owed draws her into a contest with her ruthless stepmother and uncle. Prolific period actors Kamal El-Shennawy and Hussein Reyadh also star in this compelling class drama about the struggle between privilege and honor.

This poster shows Fakhreddine in an emotional image, concern at her plight clearly shown on her face. Her father looms above her in the background, the monochrome coloration and intervening clouds hinting that he gazes down on her from the afterlife. Vivid yellows, greens and blues predominate, and green calligraphy for the title symbolizes the rural setting.
