Plot summary: Banat, the prettiest girl in her village, lived with her brother Farag and his wife. She worked with him to meet living costs. All the young men in the village wanted her because of her charm and beauty but none approached her other than Shaban, who did so despite his mother's objections. He made a contract to marry her and her brother Farag felt relieved because his sister had finally settled on somone. A frivolous boy named Gharib appeared and tried to get Banat by offering to have the local seamstress Zakia make some clothing for her, but he failed. Shaban noticed Gharib's attention and Banat's rejection of him; they quarrelled and he had to cancel the marriage contract. Farag suggested she marry Gharib, but she vehemently refused. Gharib came across her once in a field and when she saw him she was horrified and ran away from him screaming. The people in the village thought he had raped her and they took her to Om George for an examination to see if she was still a virgin. Her innocence was proven, but she could no longer live among them so she went to Zakia the taylor so she could do what the people in the village wanted her to do so she could submit herself to Gharib.
