قرر الشخص (أنطوان كرباج) صاحب السلطة العليا في البلاد أ ن يزور الشعب. أعدّ المتصرّف (نصري شمس الدين ) التحضيرات اللازمة ووضعت اللجنة برنامج الإحتفال. كلّف المتصرّف الشاويش (وليم حسواني) بإخلاء الساحة من البائعين الذين يحضرون يوميا لبيع منتوجاتهم والسعي وراء لقمة عيشهم. المتصرّف حساس وشاعر بهموم الناس ولكن القانون لا يرحم أحد, وعليه أن ينفذ الأوامر .

وصل الشخص الى الساحة باستقبال رسمي , وإذ فجأة تدخل بائعة البندورة (فيروز) تجّرعربتها التي ورثتها عن والدها وهي مصدر رزقها والمعيل الوحيد لإخوتها الصغار. حاول الجميع إبعادها عن الساحة لكن دون جدوى. رحبّت بالشخص وغنت له. هو بدوره لم يدل بأي تصريح واعتذر وغادر من دون أن يشارك  في الغذاء الذي كان معدّا على شرفه. استاء الجميع من بائعة البندورة على تصرفها الغير لائق. نتيجة هذا التصرف صودرت العربة وأخذت رهينة لحين تحظى بمحام يدافع عنها ويرد لها حقها .  لكن البائعة ليس لديها سوى البندورة لتسّد اتعاب المحامي (فليمون وهبه) وحينها سخر منها وقال ” يا بنتي اللي بيدفع بندورة بتروح دعوته سلاطة “. التقت البائعة بالمتصرف وشكت له مشكلتها وطلبت منه المساعدة .  وهنا سألها المتصرف كيف يمكن أن يساعدها وهوالمظلوم الذي يتلقى الأوامر من السلطة الأعلى منه , وأولاد البلد عليهم أن يتحملوا الموقف لأنهم اساس البناء . كماعليهم إلا أن يفرحوا لأن العناية اختارتهم ليكونوا أساس البناء .  حان وقت المحاكمة وحكم أن تباع العربة في المزاد العلني , كما منع الباعة من البيع في الساحة. بيعت العربة بمئة ليرة وأمنيات البائعة باستدانة هذا المبلغ لاسترجاعها لم تتحقق.   

قابلت البائعة الشخص بينما كان وحده يتجول وروت له قصتها. صدم لما سمع وقال لها انه أعجب بصوتها وجرأتها وهو حضر الى الساحة لتشجيع التجارة. كما وعدها بإصدار أمر لإستعادة عربتها . 

تختم البائعة المسرحية بأغنية ” جينا لحلال القصص تنحل قصتنا – ولقينا في عندو قصة يا محلا قصتنا ” . ذهلت بقصته ومشاكله التي تفوق مشكلتها ومعاناتها .

About Nasri Shamseddine

Nasri Shamseddine (1927 - 1983) The Lebanese singer Nasri Shamseddine was born on June 27, 1927 in Joun, a small village in Mount Lebanon. He inherited his vocal talents from his mother and started singing at the age of six. He took part in choirs and plays at school, and he taught himself how to play the oud. Nasri finished high school, and then started to teach. However, because he associated everything with music, it was without surprise that he was fired for singing to his students in class.Throughout the years, Nasri continued to try new jobs, but lost them due to his love of music. In 1950, when he was twenty-three, Nasri traveled to Egypt, which at the time was the musical center of the Arab world. There, he worked on his vocals and also became more familiar with playing the oud. Upon his return to Lebanon, Nasri applied for a chorus position at a radio station. This was where he met Fairouz and the Rahbani brothers, and started working with the famous singer. The duo sang together on radio stations before heading to the theater. They performed together in 1957 in Baalbak as well as in the Cedars of Lebanon. In 1967, Nasri and Fairouz started their annual musicals at the Picadilly Theater in Beirut. He also performed in Beyt Eddine with Sabah, Wadih Al Safi, Majdala and many others. Still though, Nasri remained unsatisfied, so he took on a solo career as well as major roles in three movies. Additionally, in order to be recognized internationally, he traveled to Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America. He declared that his favorite country was Brazil. Nasri adhered to the Lebanese dialect in his songs, which was very attractive to the common Lebanese public who were mostly from the countryside and mountainous regions. However, Nasri’s singing career was an uphill battle. Even though he grew up in a small town and his surroundings were not very supportive of his career choice, his determination helped him find the success he desired. His career as a singer, performer and actor continued for thirty years. Today, , his songs, movies, and plays are still broadcasted all over the world. Nasri Shamseddine had always dreamt of dying on stage and his dream became a sad reality when he suffered an aneurism on stage in Damascus, Syria on March 18, 1983. Nasri Shamseddine is a legend, with a unique voice that has no equivalence. He is considered to be one of the greatest Arab singers of all times, and he will never be forgotten.
