This film starred Ismail Yassin, Abdel Menam Ibrahim, Khayria Ahmed and Zahret al Ola and was written by Abo El Seoud El Ebiary.  Ismail Yassin played Hassouna, a vet who moves his practice back to the countryside to live on a piece of land he owns. He falls in love with the daughter of his neighbour and asks for her hand in marriage. Her widower father agrees to their engagement, on the condition that the vet hands over his land which the father believes has oil under it. However, testing shows there’s no oil so the father breaks the engagement. Later on, after oil is discovered, the father agrees to the marriage, and then he proposes to the vet’s sister. Happy ever after!
