Plot summary: This film tells a story set during the 1947 cholera epidemic in Cairo, when it was believed that anyone infected with the disease would die within six days. Sadiqa [Dalida] is a woman who leaves Cairo on a Nile vessel to bury relatives. She has lost everyone in her family and her only remaining hope is her grandson, but he is also afflicted with the disease; when he dies she kills herself, even though she has a young companion on her Nile voyage named Okka [Mohsen Mohieddin] who has fallen in love with her despite the difference in their ages.
