One of them was Ahmed [Nour El-Sherif, who lived with numbers and had a breakdown while working at a bank. The second was an amateur musician named Medhat Youssef [Samir Sabri], who competed for a prize at a song festival but failed. The third was Mohamed Youssef the mathematician who went to the hospital because of a personal crisis, and the fourth was Geneidy [Sameer Ghanem] the soccer player who had failed as his team's goalee and who believed there were conspiracies all around him. On the way to Alexandria they met a man named Fadel Abdel Hafiz [Abdel Moneim Madbouly] and his daughters on the al-Agami beach.

In the midst of comedic, musical and dance scenes at the beach and in the hotel Dr. Nabil restored his patients to health, and they even demonstrated they were all normal when the police came to investigate a complaint about the presence of deranged people at the hotel. Of course they all fell in love and lived happily ever after.
