The film was produced and distributed by Lotus Films (Asia).Plot summary: Elham [Faten Hamama] marries Nabil [Imad Hamdi] and moves with him to his mother's house. Problems arise there between Elham and her mother-in-law [Zeinab Sedky]. Nabil's mother is threatened by Elham who seems to be more the "lady of the house" than she is. Because of this antagonism--and after discovering that Elham might be sterile--the mother-in-law tries to convince her son to marry another woman, Madiha [Mona].Elham decides to leave the house, but on her way out she stumbles on a railroad track and is taken to the hospital. The doctor tells Nabil that Elham was pregnant when she fell and had a miscarriage. Nabil is devastated and blames his mother. The mother apologizes to Elham and asks for forgiveness.
