The story of a young boy called Behrooz who fails at everything he tries to do. Instead of finding the cause of his failures, Behrooz just considers himself unlucky and when his failures continue, he commits suicide. However, since the drugs he had consumed were expired , he survives. He decides to commit suicide again but this time a young psychiatric resident called Parisa saves him, and to stop him from committing suicide again, she promises him that he won't ever be unlucky again and that he will even have a very good chance ahead of him in the future. Behrooz believes her but he threatens that if those nice things don't happen, he'll kill himself. And that's the beginning of a new adventure for Behrooz.
