Mariam Fakhreddine, the iconic Rushdy Abaza and period actor Stephan Rosti star in this heartbreaking film that addresses the perils of drug addiction. Uniquely for the time, this film portrayed the problem from the vantage of the victims and the people trying to save them. The film was directed by Raymond Nassour, who enjoyed a brief but notable career in the Egyptian cinema.
The film's dramatic and somber story is highlighted by the dark colors and unique brush stroke style deployed by the poster's artist, Marcel. Mariam Fakhreddine's expression hints at the desperation of her addiction, while Rushdy Abaza's doctor character tries to administer medication. Red title sign with a French translation is a notable departure from the norm.
