Omar Sharif "Ragab" is a destitute fisherman who returns home from three years of travel. Mamdouh is the son of a wealthy Alexandrian shipping company boss. Both are in love with the same woman, Hamida, who also happens to be Ragab’s cousin. Trouble ensues between Ragab and Mamdouh while working as sailors in the port of Alexadria.

  • Masterfully directed by internationally acclaimed Youssef Chahine, Obscure Waters features Omar Sharif in one of his earliest films co-starring the legendary Faten Hamama.
