A pregnant woman gives birth to twin boys, but circumstances force her to give them up for adoption. One of the twins goes to an Egyptian family, which names him Amal, while the other goes to a Spanish family, which names him Juan. Many years later, the grown-up Juan sends a picture of himself to his mum. Upon receiving the picture, she is moved to tears. Between sobs, she says to her husband: Oh, how I wish I had a photo of Amal as well. Unmoved, her husband replies: But my dear, they are twins. If you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal.
