Even after ten years, Lieutenant Morteza Rashed still has nightmares of corpses and dolls floating around after the fall of the Airbus plane by those who served aboard USS Vincennes at 1988. He has been holding a grudge towards them ever since they attacked this plane, and is always looking for an opportunity to take revenge. He even once swims to the ship and hits it with his fists. His personal life issues are also on his mind. He has always been in conflict with his disobedient son, Habib. His wife, Fatemeh believes that his preoccupations have had a negative effect on their lives. Habib is trying to escape with his girlfriend, Salma, but Morteza finds their boat at the last minute and leaves Habib alone on a half-burned ship in the middle of the sea as a punishment. He is summoned by his commander and scolded for having approached the ship. Fatemeh and Salma decide to pay him a visit, but their boat has an accident and after everyone thinks they are dead, a helicopter from USS Vincennes takes them to the half-burned ship. In the end, after Lieutenant Rashed has made all preparations necessary to attack the USS Vincennes, he is informed that his retirement order has been issued and he is no longer in charge.
