In Cairo Station, Kenawi, the limping newspaper salesman, falls in love with Hannouma, the femme fatale who sells cold drinks. Hannouma, meanwhile, loves the handsome Abo Seriea, who struggles to form a union for the porters at the station. Progressive ideals and outstanding performances place this memorable film at the forefront of Arab cinema productions.
