An unexpected rain destroys the crops in a village, which is located on the mountainsides in the north of Iran. Like the other villagers, Rezvaneh and her four orphans are struggling with this problem. Her brother, Rahmat, takes Rezvaneh’s teenage daughter, Golbooteh, with himself to the city. There, he suggests Ghodrat, the tradesman whose wife is a barren woman, to marry Golbooteh. After a while, Ghodrat, accompanied by his father and his brother-in-law, comes to the village to propose Golbooteh. Moreover, with themselves they have brought a white mare in return to this marriage. While the necessities for the marriage is getting provided, Golbooteh protests and gets away. Rahmat, Ghodrat, and Jan-Ali look for Golbooteh, and they find her in the middle of the forest. Being angry with Golbooteh, Rahmat starts flogging her; however, Rezvaneh prevents him. As she is also afflicted by her child’s agony, Rezvaneh sends the groom’s family away; thus, the wedding is disrupted. Rezvaneh looks after her daughter for a while. Thereafter, Golbooteh consents to that marriage. The elder member of the family, named Mashhadi-Bagher, mediates between the two families; thereby, the wedding ceremony takes place. After a year, Rezvaneh and Rahmat go to visit Golbooteh and Ghodrat, who have a baby now.
