Roohi, the young girl who will soon get married, works in a service company. On the last Tuesday of the Persian year, as people are getting ready for the New Year and the city is filled with incitement, Roohi is sent to work for a couple, between whom the lack of affection is evident. Soon, Roohi is involved in their issues as well, and she finds out that the man of the house has an affair with the widow neighbor, who is working as a beautician there. His wife can feel the man’s affair, wholeheartedly; however, she cannot verify it. Driven by her curiosity, Roohi realizes this bitter truth. Despite that, being affected by her feminine feeling and not wanting to add to the couple’s turmoil, she avoids telling the truth. By the end of the day, as the city is overwhelmed by the excitement resulting from Chaharshanbe Suri [a festival held on the eve of Wednesday before Nowruz], the man arrives home, while being annoyed and distressed; he has been rejected by his beloved. As it is late in the night, the man offers Roohi a ride. He drives Roohi to the road leading to the suburb, where Roohi’s fiancée is waiting for her. Finally, the man, being abandoned by both his wife and the woman he had fallen for, returns home, where there are no love and no affection waiting for him.
