This is the story of a middle-aged nurse who gives into the sultry night life of Cairo by becoming a dancer, but retains a great deal of honor. A down-on-his luck taxi driver runs into the spirited dancer after she is beaten and robbed by a base and dangerous, yet influential singer in a popular band. The pair of honor-bound romantics begin to reveal the details of their lives with trust and unusual eloquence. The hero seeks to preserve his companion's esteem by protecting her from the crudeness of chauvinistic Egyptian society, but he suffers the tragic fate for his challenge of traditional Egypt.
