Mahmoud Basirat is a successful and efficient manager at a factory in Zanjan. There is some talk going on about selling the factory. Mr. Khakpour, the factory CEO and a close friend of Mahmoud, tells him that some strangers have tried to win him over by offering him bribes so that he would help them buy the factory. He has refused their offer but he is severely injured during a suspicious accident a short time afterwards. He is taken to a hospital and Mahmoud takes over his responsibilities. During his visits to Khakpour, he meets a nurse called Sima. This meeting leads to a temporary marriage between them. During the next months, Mahmoud is forced to put an end to this relationship. Sima, however, does not wish to proceed with this separation because she is forced to live with her addict father after her first husband's death, and also because she is pregnant with Mahmoud's child. Mahmoud asks for abortion, but Sima refuses, and Mahmoud blames them of fraud thinking she and her father want to abuse him. Sima goes to Zanjan, furious and planning to burn Mahmoud's house, to find out that he has gone to Tehran along with his wife. She leaves his house but Mahmoud and his wife find him burnt in her car on their way back to Zanjan.
