The film tells an ancient Iranian tale about a snake charmer and his three sons. The father and his two older sons are so arrogant that do not marry because they believe that they deserve more than to be married. But the youngest son is somehow different and has chosen a simple life with his wife. One day, an unknown horseman comes to them and tells about a snake which is found in the village and has killed all the snake-charmers. The father and two older brothers are bitten one after another by the snake and get killed. The youngest brother asks for help from his wife and using her advice puts a mirror in front of the snake's den and traps the snake which is looking itself in the mirror arrogantly. The father and his two sons and also the snake are perished by their abominable behavior.
