Mohamed Amin's farce The Night Baghdad Fell stars Hassan Hosni as Shakar, an Egyptian schoolteacher who, after seeing American military actions in the Middle East, becomes obsessed with the fear that the United States government will invade his homeland. In response to his fear, Shakar locates one of his former prize science students, Tarek (Ahmed Eid). Tarek has become a heavy drug user, but Shakar sets the young man up with equipment in order to help develop weapons to protect the country. Shakar also arranges a marriage between his daughter and Tarek. As the United States begins to send threatening messages toward Egypt, the men suddenly become unable to perform sexually. Soon Tarek's bride figures out an unusual way to solve that particular problem.
