Acclaimed actress Magda Zaky is playing the female lead with Mai Nour el-Sherif, Wafaa Sadek, Reem Mostafa and Nada Moussa in supporting roles.
The series revolves around a man, Shaaban, pursued by the police after he diddled a large number of businessmen; as a conman, he must disguise himself as different characters, therefore, we expect Shaaban performing in different personas each episode.
