Saba Mubarak and Amro Youssef's new film "Al Thaman" (The Price) more than just tells an emotional story. It holds a serious humanitarian message for those watching it, as it brings to screen the real suffering of Syrian refugees, who were forced to leave their homes due to the ongoing Syrian crisis. 

The Jordanian actress plays the role of a Syrian woman who flees her home and takes refuge in Cairo. That's where she meets an Egyptian man (Youssef) and a mixture of events begin to unfold.

The Price is currently in its final production stages. Director Hisham al Aysawi is hoping to screen it in a number of upcoming film festivals before its official release in Egyptian and Arab cinemas.

On her participation in the film, Saba said, "I didn't hesitate for one second before accepting this role. I enjoy taking part in films that are different and feel that this one portrays the reality we live in today. The film is not a marketing tool; it holds an important humanitarian message about a girl forced to flee her country for fear of death."

This marks Saba's third Egyptian film. The rising starlet's other credits in Egyptian films included "Bintain Min Masr" (Two Girls from Egypt) and "Al Raheb" (The Priest), alongside actor Hani Salama, in the past.
