When Fereshteh calls Roya and asks for financial help for her husband Ahmed, who is admitted to the hospital, Roya who is an architect quickly heads towards the hospital from her office, a construction engineering company. On her way, she goes through the past fifteen years of her friendship days with Fereshteh and their college days together ... Fereshteh and Roya are close friends and colleagues at the Faculty of Architecture who, for various reasons, including a student demonstration in the spring of 1980 as well as the harassments of a young guy named Hassan who introduces himself as Fereshteh’s lover, fall apart from each other. Fereshteh returns to her hometown Isfahan, and a while after that, universities shut down for an undetermined period and Fereshteh can’t continue her education anymore. Fifteen years have passed since those events and now Fereshteh is standing in front of Roya, and Fereshteh, standing face to face with her old friend, goes over the events that happened to her in the past fifteen years: The days when Hassan, who was chasing her in Isfahan, got in a car accident and killed a child and was sentenced to thirteen years in jail; those days when she married one of her suitors named Ahmad, hoping her husband would keep his promise and not prevent her for continuing her education, but that didn’t happen and thus put a difficult and tedious life in front of her… She thought of those days when Ahmad’s abundant trust issues and pessimism caused misunderstandings and disagreements between them and it got worse day by day, and when Hassan was released from jail and started chasing after her again, the disaster got way bigger and got out of control… Hassan who hasn’t lost the smallest bit of his feelings and still madly wants Fereshteh, has to unavoidably face off with Ahmad. During the fight that happens between them, Hassan’s stabs aim at Ahmad’s heart and now Ahmad, her husband, is fighting for his life at a cardiac hospital as she and her two children want to know his situation… Roya who is extremely affected by Fereshteh’s dark and upsetting past, can’t imagine her future and the whirlpool of disaster that’s pulling her in, and at that point the hospital calls in and informs them that Ahmad has passed away. Now it’s Fereshteh who has the chance to live a new life and make decisions for her future herself. Fereshteh feels like a bird who wants to fly, even though she doesn’t have the wings to do so….
