There he met Dr. Wagih [Salah Zulfikar] who had asked to be transferred to this remote place to live far from the city after being hurt by his unfaithful wife. He hated everything female, even hens. Wagih met a social overseer named Samia [Nabila Ebeid] who had also come from the Paris Oasis to work at the elementary school. However he was afraid of her and avoided talking to her. At the school where Samia worked the director Daoud [Fouad El-Mohandes] was taking steps to retire; he married one of the girls at the oasis, never to return. Wagih began to feel that this Samia differed greatly from his unfaithful wife, thanks to the influence of his friend. Engineer Nagy married Samia.
