Bahram, who is the best and the closest friend of Homayoon, commits suicide. Apparently, there is no reason for his death. Homayoon, his wife and daughter, named Badri and Homa, are very sad because of this event. In a letter, which is his will as well, Bahram has written to Homayoon that all of his fortune would go to Homa. This raises doubts in Homayoon. Homa looks more like Bahram rather than her father, Homayoon. Gradually, he becomes more suspicious that her wife, Badri, had an affair with Bahram. Also, during those three years, when he had been sent on a mission to a remote area, Bahram was looking after Badri and Homa in Tehran. The doubts raised in Homayoon make his wife and her daughter leave him.. As the time passes, Homayoon becomes entangled by nightmares and he starts hating everybody and everything. Now his belief is that he is betrayed by his friend and his own wife. After meeting two different characters, a philosopher and a retired assassin, he concludes that it was his own fault that has gradually estranged him from his wife and has led her affections toward his friend. Homayoon, while he has come to a dead end, is going to leave Tehran, then he receives Bahram’s second letter. There, Bahram has admitted that he had been in love with Badri; however, he had been struggling with himself for four years to overcome that wicked desire. Homayoon, finding out that his wife is innocent and Homa is his own daughter, hurries off to Badri’s father’s home. But no one is there. After asking others, he becomes aware of a disaster; his daughter is dead due to an illness, and now everyone is in the cemetery by her grave.
