film Torrent of Tears [assefa min al-demou'] starring Farid
Shawqi based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Mustafa Samy, with
cinematography by Mahmoud Nasr. Plot summary: When the secretary
Aziza [Nahed Gabr] went to Essam [Farid Shawqi] to marry him after
promising herself to him and becoming pregnant by him, Essam refused
the marriage and married his client Enayat [Laila Taher] instead.
Aziza died giving birth to her daughter Hedia [Hala Fouad]. An
elderly neighbor named Abdullah [Abdel Waress Assar] took over the
care of her daughter. Aziza had told him the girl's father was a big
attorney, but refused to mention his name. The years went by and at a
party Salwa [Shirin] the daughter of the attorney Essam became engaged
to Tareq [Emad Rashad] who did not feel any love towards her, only the
common interests between the two parents. Tareq actually loved Hedia,
who had gotten involved in a relationship with him after he had
pledged to marry her, but his father refused to allow the marriage.
Hedia discovered she was pregnant. Kindly old Abdullah learned this
and sued Tareq; he engaged the biggest attorney in the country, Essam,
to defend Hedia. While Essam was preparing the case Abdullah told him
about Hedia's life, her mother and how she had left her with
Abdullah. Essam advised Tareq to marry Hedia so she would not suffer
any longer and to relieve his conscience, which had been bothering him
these many years while he had been looking for his daughter.
