Sherif, the warehouse manager of a company, seizes quantities of goods to sell on the black market. Youssef, an employee of the company, is suspicious of the matter, and submits a report of violations to the company's president, who sets a date for an inventory of the stores. But secretary "Dalia" informs "Sharif" of the date of the committee's arrival, so his agents burn the stores, and accuses "Youssef" of committing several violations in order to remove suspicion from himself. Journalist Bahira is assigned to conduct a press investigation about the fire. Youssef contacts her and provides her with the necessary documents for her investigation into the incident.
