starring Zubaida Tharwat based on a story by Ibrahim al-Mawgi with
screenplay and dialogue by Abdel Rahman El Khamesy and Ahmed El
Khamesy and cinematography by Adel Abdel Azim. Plot summary: As a
married couple Kamal [Mohamed Lutfy] and Samiha [Moshira Ismail] had
their dreams disrupted after Kamal discovered he had a critical
disease, which he concealed from everyone. One night Kamal met an
actress named Hayat [Zubaida Tharwat], who was working at a night club
to make ends meet after her husband died. She was planning to quit
the night club but its manager Rashed [Ahmad Taufiq] wanted her to
stay, so he kidnapped her daughter to get leverage. Hayat fell in
love with Kamal. Kamal decided to end his relationship with Hayat and
tell her about his illness, but he died in his train seat on the way
to see her in Alexandria and never had a chance to do it. In a
dramatic final scene, standing on the train platform waiting for his
arrival Hayat saw him through the window sitting dead in his seat, but
his body was not removed and she watched as the train continued on its
way with its dead passenger.
