Rezvan and Haj Ebrahim are a middle-aged couple who live a peaceful and monotonous life in an old house. Their only reason of excitement in life is their participation in charity affairs. Their son, Amir, who is married, lives in a town far from them. Rezvan who works actively in Kahrizak Charity Foundation, asks for volunteers to support the survivors of an earthquake, and decides to adopt the only survived daughter of a family herself. Because of religious considerations, a confidentiality concubine is established between the girl, Maral, and Haj Ebrahim. Maral is a 20-year old girl and when she comes to their house, Rezvan finds out that the atmosphere is not normal. She asks her husband to find a man for Maral but Haj Ebrahim hinders each time because he is tempted to marry Maral on a permanent basis. At the same time, when Maral meets Masoud, the son of a Rezvan's friend, Faegheh, while spending his military service, she falls in love with him. Rezvan finds out about Haj Ebrahim's ambitions and tries to prevent him from marrying Maral, but she fails and leaves the house and goes to her sister Reihan. After Rezvan is gone, Haj Ebrahim tries to return Maral who is sent to Faegheh's house by Rezvan, but Maral confesses that she always has thought of him as a father. Haj Ebrahim comes to himself and goes to Reihan's house to bring Rezvan back, but Rezvan refuses to return. Haj Ebrahim asks for forgiveness and Rezvan accepts to come back home. After a while, Maral and Masoud celebrate their wedding ceremony in Haj Ebrahim's house, but Rezvan is still concerned about her husband who is watching Maral in bride dress.
