Yaqoub has lost his wife in an accident, and he has his mother taking care of his only son, named Yousef. Yaqoub gets entangled by a plot. A quarrel between a youngster, Jamil, and the famous smuggler, Nadim, leads to Jamil’s murder. Then, through the witnesses’ false testimonies, Yaqoub is accused of murdering Jamil; thereby, he is put into the prison. After Yaqoub’s mother passes away and his son is left with no one to look after him, a police officer, Aziz, adopts him. Aziz supposes that Yaqoub will be imprisoned for life; hence, he cannot believe that following a general amnesty, Yaqoub is released from prison after ten years. After getting his freedom back, Yaqoub immediately comes to the port to look for his son. It is clear that Aziz, who is now a major and the commander of the police station of the region, is not happy with Yaqoub’s returning. So through a meeting with Yaqoub, Aziz tells him that as a criminal with records, he had no place in the city. Then, he orders him to leave the port immediately. Meanwhile, Aziz is struggling with Nadim and other smugglers in the port. In order to get Nadim and his stooges off the port, Aziz gets Nadim’s son as a hostage. He warns Nadim that he will not let go of his son, unless he gets out of the port. Through an unexpected reaction, Nadim kidnaps Yousef and states that he would return Yousef in exchange for his own hostage son. Aziz does not consent to Nadim’s demand. Nevertheless, Aziz’s wife, Zahra, being unable of convincing his husband, inevitably looks for Yousef’s real father, Yaqoub. She informs Yaqoub about Yousef’s life and his current situation. Thereafter, Yaqoub and his old friend, Ibrahim, manage to infiltrate into Nadim’s settlement and they try to get Yousef rescued from there. There occurs a fight, which leads to Ibrahim’s death. However, Yaqooub manages to save Yousef’s life. The major Aziz and his forces arrive and help Yaqoub, who has killed Nadim and is injured by many bullets. Yousef returns to the major, while having no idea that his real father has saved his life once again.
