Plot summary: A wealthy man married a woman who had divorced an irresponsible alcoholic painter [Mahmoud El-Meliguy]. The wealthy man educated her two sons, one of whom was from another husband, and the boys grew up together like twins. Yehia, the son of the painter, loved Samia [Imane] but his brother made trouble for him and Samia turned away from him. They quarreled at a party when he was quite drunk and then he got in his car and killed a pedestrian. At his trial he confessed the truth. This caused tension in the family but when he returned to his father the painter, the father took responsibility for the first time; he had a reconciliation with his wife and his son when he saw the love between mother and son and the son's confession of the truth.
