A man and his wife encounter some unanticipated delays en route to a religious shrine. As he drives his car to the holy city of Mashad, the man, Mahmood, who is a young photographer applies his trade and snaps photos of various sites and locations. His wife, Mahtab, is pregnant and had three unsuccessful maternities. Further down the road, the car breaks down and gets turned away from the main road, forcing the man to walk in search of someone to make the necessary repairs. His wife who has been sleeping most of the trip and had disconcerting dreams awakens and goes with him. Arriving at a nearby village, the husband is directed to the local schoolteacher, who apparently is just as gifted with cars as he is with children and agrees to help. As the two men leave, the wife, who is a former teacher herself, wanders into the school building to watch after the children. As the photographer's wife begins forming a genuine bond with the children, the schoolteacher, and the photographer also develop a rapport as each teaches the other something about their chosen trades and how those trades relate to the greater good of each man's community.
