Plot Summary: The youth of Algeria could find no means of liberation other than battle. Jamila Buohired decided she had to be a part of the liberation front, so she joined Yousef Saadi's [Ahmed Mazhar] secret team. The team was smuggling weapons from the Arab nations and killing French officers. The team had to change its hiding place and Jamila volunteered to help. Soldiers arrested her, but the rest of her team escaped. She was savagely tortured and told to reveal Yousef's location, but she endured the utmost torture without betraying her country. In a rigged trial she was sentenced to death but there was an international movement to save her. According to film critic Sa'ad al-Din Tawfiq this is one of the top 100 Egyptian films.
