In this parody on the Egyptian legal and social systems by director Raafat El-Mihi, Hassan (Adel Imam) is a glib lawyer who verbally bends the law to suit his circumstances but is not astute enough to stay out of jail. Between this lawyer, a judge, a policeman, and a teacher, the foibles of a society in which the law and justice are two separate concepts are surrealistically and comically noted.
