Plot Summary: Zeinab (Shadia) believed it was her right to choose her
husband but her father the mayor arranged a marriage to her cousin
against her wishes. Zeinab ran away and her cousin decided he would
kill her if he found her. Zeinab went to Cairo where she met a young
physician who gave her shelter. They fell in love and agreed to marry
in three years after he returned from an assignment in Europe.
However he came home drunk one night and raped her. In the morning he
was unable to explain to her his decision to marry her. He left and
she thought he had fled after deceiving her. She left the house and
went to live with one of the doctor's friends, who treated her as a
sister. They joined a singing group that toured the Arab nations.
When the physician returned he tried to find Zeinab so he could marry
her but no one could say where she was. She was living with the
physician's friend outside Cairo where she had her baby and was
raising the child. She learned from the newspapers that he had become
a representative for the hospital in her town. She decided to return
to Cairo to ask him to acknowledge his son. When she met him he was
confused to learn he had a son. He emphasized he would acknowledge
him but he asked her to give him time. She believed he was avoiding
her. Suddenly her family summoned him to help her dying father. She
went with him and asked his forgiveness. The father died and the
cousin decided to kill her, but he changed his mind in the end because
of her sister's pleading, and she finally returned to her town. The
physician's friend mediated between Zeinab and the physician and
harmony was restored between them.
