Plot summary: Abol Fotouh, [Abdel Moneim Madbouli] the secretary of the greedy merchant al-Sherbouni, [Gamil Rateb] persuaded Salah [Adel Imam] to go to prison in exchange for a promise of an apartment and a lathe workshop. In prison Salah met the imprisoned artist Farouq [Yehia El-Fakharani] and Ali Shamsoun, [Aly El Cherif] who was condemned to death but had been given a reprieve. With the help of hand signals, Salah fell in love with Faiza, [Soad Hosny] a prisoner in the adjacent women's prison. After Faiza was released she went to get the apartment but Al-Sherbouni hid it from her and did not keep his promise. Salah broke out of prison so he could take revenge against Al-Sherbouni. He married Faiza and remained in hiding until he could travel abroad with Farouq's fake passport. Seduced by money, Farouq had to declare the date of Al-Sharbouni's trip. The police went to the airport but Salah evaded them and fled. He went to Al-Sherbouni's home and killed him; then he was put back in prison.
