In the early 40's, after his first visit to Turkey, Reza Shah who was impressed by the fact that Ataturk knew the population of his country ordered a census. In order for the census to properly work out, everyone had to stay home while the agents came to visit. A few government agents used this opportunity and rubbed a jewelry store in Lale zar, unaware of the fact that a piece of Khane-Mozzafar's marriage jewelry is between the rubbed items. Khane-Mozzafar orders the sherrif to find and give back the piece of jewelry as soon as possible. The sherrif gives the job to the co-called 6-fingered detective. The detective is pretty good at his job and soon finds the jewelry and earns Khane-Mozzafar's respect and trust. The detective who now works for Khane-Mozzafar has a new mission to capture a man who the latter has been looking for for a long time. The khan wants to take revenge from the artist.
