Plot summary: The obscure artist Wahid (Anwar Wagdi) married his colleague, another obscure artist named Drop of Dew, (Shadia) and they set out to create work for themselves that was worthy of their talents. Time passed and this was not achieved. Wahid decided to play a trick to make himself famous; he claimed he had killed his wife. His trick succeeded and he acquired great fame. A lady's body was found; the police thought it was his wife's body and that he was really the murderer. Wahid said his wife had not been killed and that she was alive somewhere. His wife had actually been in an automobile accident which caused memory loss. Wahid was sentenced to death. The lawyer tried to restore the wife's memory quickly to save Wahid from the gallows; he succeeded in doing this at the last moment and Wahid was accordingly released. His fame began there; a quick change in his theater contracts brought him renown he had never imagined.
