Katy, the last wife of Farzad, has also returned to Iran in order to attend the funeral. She used to be a famous actress and she had left the country under Farzad's compulsion. Saber Shahin, who has been raised and trusted by Farzad's family since his childhood, is managing Farzad's company. He is also the chief editor of his controversial journal. After Farzad's death, Saber is in charge of all matters. Faramak is looking for a notebook which is believed to be the will of his father. He is seeking to achieve his rights. On the other hand, Katy is trying to use this opportunity and continue her acting career. Saber Shahin tries to discover the family's secrets to get to know the dark corners of Farzad's life. He finds the documents of Farzad's involvements with Freemasonry. He realizes that Farzad was in fact the great master of Freemasons.
