Plot summary: Ismail [Ismail Yasseen] was a simple boy who fell in love with his cousin Nadia [Zahrat El-Ola] in the Al-Anfushi neighborhood. He asked her to marry him, but the aunt [Zeinat Sedki] opposed the marriage because she had promised the girl in marriage to an older teacher, Abbas Afash [Mahmoud El-Meliguy]. The girl asked Ismail to join the Navy because she had friends there. Ismail did this and formed good friendships with two them [Abdel Moneim Ismail and Ahmed Ramzy] while maintaining regular correspondence with Nadia. His comrades in the Navy were sad when they heard Nadia had became engaged to Abbas Afash, and they gave Ismail some money so he could go marry her himself. Then they all descended on the Al-Anfushi neighborhood and began fighting with the Afash's friends. This spoiled the wedding and Ismail married his sweetheart after the military police arrested the troublemakers.
