In tandem with Eid Al-Fitr celebrations across Egypt, The Producers released a new music video entitled Five, Six, Hepta which tells the four stories of Hepta: The Last Lecture from a different perspective.

According to MAD Solutions, a Cairo-based company that specialises in public relations and marketing for the film and entertainment industry, the music video release followed the feature film that became "the highest-grossing romantic film in the history of Egyptian cinema as the film's revenues increase to hit more than EGP 26 million since its release in Egyptian theaters."

The music video features several cast members from Hepta: The Last Lecture alongside the popular Egyptian indie band Sharmoofers.

Directed by Hadi El-Bagoury, the film features many well-known Egyptian actors, Maged El-Kedwany, Ahmed Malek, Ahmed Dawood, Dina El-Sherbiny, Yasmine Raeis, Jamila Awad, Amr Youssef, Hany Adel, Ahmed Bedeir, Salwa Mohamed Aly, Kinda Alloush, as well as singer-actress Anoushka.

The film is based on a novel with the same title, adapted for the screen by Wael Hamdy, who is also known for authoring the screenplay for Mikano (2009).

El-Bagoury's previous major works include Wahed Saheh (2011) and the thriller Warda (2014).

Hepta – which means seven in Greek – takes the audience on a journey to the worn-out world of love, where Sadek traces the seven stages of the emotion: the beginning, the encounter, the relationship bond, the wakefulness, the truth, which is followed by the decision, and then the ending, or the Hepta stage.
