Based on the novel by Mika Waltari, 'The Egyptian' takes place during the reign on Akhnaton (around 1352 B.C.). The story, told in flashback, begins with an abandoned infant found in a reed basket on the Nile who is taken into the home of a talented physician Senmut. Named Sinuhe he grows into an idealistic young man, and undertakes studies to become a physician just like his foster father.He becomes best friends with the energic and extroverted Horemheb, who is training for the army at the same school run by the priests. Very different in character the two friends go on an excursion hunting lions in the desert. They save the life of a strange lone man who they find worshipping the carved image of the sun. Unbeknown to them he is actually the new young Pharaoh Akhenaton, who is introducing a far less war like type of rule into Egypt based on the worship of one god the Aten.Akhenaton makes Sinuhe personal physician to the royal family and Horemheb a commander in his army. Enjoying the good life Horemheb one night takes Sinuhe to the home of an infamous Babylonian courtesan Nefer, with whom Sinuhe becomes instantly besotted. Nefer however only plays with men and before too long Sinuhe has sacrificed everything for her only to be then cruelly rejected when she is tired of playing with him.Having neglected his duties Sinuhe is a marked man and flees Egypt spending many years in foreign countries practising his medical genius. When he returns home however Egypt has slipped into serious trouble as Akhenaton has lost the respect of the military and his new religion is dividing the country.Sinuhe even finds Horemheb is plotting against the Pharaoh with his ambitious Princess Baketamon. In the rebellion that follows Meret is killed when Akhenaton's temple is sacked and Sinuhe loses forever his young son Thoth. Dragged into the plot when it is revealed he is actually the Pharoah's half brother Sinuhe finally realises how he has compromised all of his principles and leaves to start a lonely existence on his own in the desert, bereft of family or love.

In 18th dynasty Egypt (14th Century B.C.), Sinuhe (Edmund Purdom) is an elderly man in exile on the shores of the Red Sea, writing the story of his life. He says he has always been alone, but has had a long, full life. Cast adrift as a baby in a reed boat on the Nile (common practice in that period and not limited to Moses), he was adopted by a middle-aged couple in the city of Thebes. His adoptive father Senmut (Carl Benton Reid) was a physician who served the poor. As a young man, Sinuhe graduates from the School of Life and is respected as a brilliant physician by his classmates, including his best friend Horemheb (Victor Mature), the son of a cheese-maker, who plans an army career. Sinuhe wants to work for the poor like his father, but has a hard time finding clients. He is approached by Kaptah (Peter Ustinov) who offers to become his servant and garner him some publicity. Another friend of Sinuhe's is Merit (Jean Simmons), a quiet, shy tavern-maid, who is secretly in love with him.

Story of foundling who becomes a physician and involved in plot to poison the Pharaoh. From the story by Mika Waltari.
