When a poor student kills an elderly female moneylender, he believes that he is some sort of revolutionary hero. It is quite a comedown for him when he is instead treated as a very ordinary murderer. This movie adapted its story from Dostoyevsky's famous novel Crime and Punishment, changing it to an Egyptian locale, but it otherwise remains remarkably true to its source.
