In order to make his new film, a director is looking for a new actress; thereby, he visits some acting training institutes. During his pursuit, the director meets a girl, named Mandana. He finds her appropriate for performing the vacant role. Moreover, Mandana passes the audition with success. Then, to sign a contract, the director asks for an agreement letter, signed by Mandana’s father. Despite what Mandana expects, her father, being an open-minded author who appreciates the art as well, does not like her daughter to become an actress. Her father assumes that the acting career will bring dishonor on the family. Regarding the reasons for Mandana’s father’s disapproval, the director believes that her father is insulting to himself and to the actors and actresses as well. Therefore, he is determined to enlighten Mandana’s father and to convince him to consent in whatever way possible.
