The good brother Ahmed [Samir Sabri] who ran a school tried to settle affairs between the brother and the father. The father gave a sum of money to Tewfiq in return for ceding the land, but Tewfiq threatened to kill him if he did not give him more. Tewfiq liked Aida [Mervat Amin] but she had refused him previously and had taken from him the money she had used to pay the debt caused by her father's embezzlement from the cashier's office. Tewfiq and Aida became engaged. Al-Aramany provided for Lula, [Nadia Lutfi] the owner of the hotel where he liked to drink. He sold Tewfiq's share of the inheritance to Lula and Tewfiq went to settle accounts with Lula, but he fell in love with her, which angered his father. Aida worried Tewfiq would leave her; Tewfiq's brother Shawqi even advised her to leave him. However the demented epileptic brother Hamza, [Mohi Ismail] who was an illegitmate son and worked as a servant in the home, told his father about it. Tewfiq threatened to kill his father to separate him from Lula and get what was left of his inheritance from him. At the time of the visit the father sensed the presence of a strange person in the garden and screamed. Tewfiq saw Uncle Abdou al-Safragi and fled. Hamza told his brother Shawqi that he was the killer then hung himself. The court sentenced Tewfiq to be hung but the atheist Shawqi knew the truth and declared God also knew it.
