This moral drama, based on French writer Marcel Pagnol's play Topaz, stars iconic Egyptian actor Farid Shawqi as a school teacher who is fired for being too honest. He embraces corruption in his new job as a businessman and earns a fortune for himself and his cronies. When an old love (the beautiful Laila Taher) guides him back toward honesty, his colleagues will stop at nothing to prevent the escape of their cash cow.
A vivid yellow background highlights the tender kiss shared by Shawqi and an anguished Taher, with pivotal images from the film foregrounded. The heartfelt emotions of the film, and the moral battle between honesty and corruption, are beautifully portrayed in this poster art.
