A respected neighborhood boss lives a criminal double life, pretending to be pious while secretly selling drugs and commanding a local gang. When a man arrives from the countryside and joins his gang, he finds himself on a collision course with not only the newcomer, but also a beautiful belly dancer seeking revenge for the deaths of her father and brother. Mahmoud El-Meligy, Farid Shawqi, and Huda Sultan star in this gritty crime thriller from director Kamal Attiyah.

Teal hues of the Nile River, key to an exciting chase scene from the film, dominate in this colorful and characterful poster. The lovely Huda Sultan is shown in warm contrasting colors, with El-Meligy and Shawqi in framing cameos that showcase their characters. Film noir is a relatively rare genre in the Egyptian cinema, this attractive poster represents one of the very few examples from the period.
