village in 7th Century Arabia Qays ibn al-Mulawah [Yehia Chahine] fell
madly in love with his cousin Leila and incessantly recited poems
about her. His story spread through the village, but it was a
violation of tradition. Moreover, although Leila was happily spending
her days with Qays, Qays had a rival for her hand in a man named Ward
[Mahmoud El-Meliguy]. When the rival proposed her father [Ibrahim
Emara] agreed and married Leila to him without her consent. The
distraught poet took to wandering aimlessly, reciting poems and
hallucinating about his lost love, while Leila got sick and died.
