Maher Al-Attar plays a ne'er-do-well who, goaded by his irresponsible friends, tricks a young woman (Zubaida Tharwat) who lives in his father's apartment building into a passionate relationship. When his father dies he inherits a substantial sum and has second thoughts about the relationship, even though she is pregnant. He decides to abandon her, despite his overwhelming guilt, and she seeks solace in the arms of her brother's friend. This is a film that successfully explores issues of responsibility and obligation that were common points of controversy in Egyptian society.
In this attractive poster, Maher and Zubaida are framed within a melancholy blue heart, her in a lovely pink dress and seemingly distracted despite his intense attention. There's a distinct sweetness about the image, alongside a feeling of poignant loss as it seems clear this is a romance that is doomed to betrayal. Musical notes flutter above them, a sure indication that this film is a musical from the classic era of the genre.
