Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Yasser is a young man who along with his family deals with the social changes implemented by Abdul Nasser. When he believes his family may be out of money, he vows to become like Robin Hood and steal from the rich. Leil is a peasant boy he recruits to help in his mischievous adventures. His Aunt Mona is courted by a Nasser aid, and his cousin Dahlia's romance with a soldier ends because he is lower class. The feature serves up an excellent slice of life representative of 1961 Egypt.
