Co-scripted by author Naguib Mahfouz, this murder mystery is a deep dive into the
human psyche, exploring the social conscience of Egypt in light of the Six-Day War. In
it, a body turns up with a photograph in its pocket. The corpse is the twin brother of a
famous author and social climber and, from that moment on, the writer’s life takes a
drastically different course.
The film stars the “Cinderella of Egyptian cinema” and one of the most influential
actresses in the Middle East and the Arab world, Souad Hosni alongside the brilliant
Izzat Al-Alayli, Hoda Sultan, Mahmoud Al-Meliguy, and more.
