The movie consists of three love stories; that is, the love three girls have for life, and is buried under the problems of the society. Delaram (Madineh) Saber is a young girl from an Arab family who has recently divorced her addicted husband and is currently doing carpet weaving. A young man, nearly at the end of his military service time, meets and falls in love with Delaram. They decide that once the guy's military service is over, he and his mother will come to propose to Delaram, but secret meetings of the two makes Delaram's brothers suspicious, and they behead the poor girl. Nasim Pooyan, a first-year student in a medical school, pretends that she's studying medical laboratory sciences because of her father's strict and fullish beliefs. When her father finds out about the truth, he takes Nasim out of the university and locks her in the basement because he believes that hospitals are corrupted places and he doesn't want his daughter to spend time alone with doctors. Not knowing what to do, Nasim sets herself on fire and burns. Bemani Habibian is a highschool student from a poor and crowded family. Her father, a sweeper, decides to make Bemani marry their old landlord, Khalou, in exchange for 3 years of rent. Bemani runs away, but her father finds her and the wedding ceremony is held. What they don't know is that Bemani is in love with a young shepherd who wants to go to the city in order to make more money. Once, when Bemani mentioned the shepherd, her father beat her up. To the old man, Bemani is nothing but a maid, and at last, she rebels and hits Khalou with a bat and runs away to her father's and self-immolates. At the end, with a burnt face and body and soul Bemani divorces Khalou and starts wandering in the streets. There she meets a young pitman in a graveyard and they decide to stay with each other.
