Attia El-Gabalawy, a man obsessed with possession, imposes strict control over his household. Whether it was his sister "Tafida", who tried to escape from home to marry the one she loved, but soon returned after his murder. Or "Samia", his daughter, who was prevented from going to school and sentenced to ignorance. A series of events and surprises lead to Samia's suicide. "Atia" denounces what his daughter did and denies that he recognized her corpse, but "Ahmed" admonishes him and identifies his sister's corpse.
