When Mohammadreza Shah’s reign is about to be put to an end, headmaster Makvandi becomes the commander of a gendarmerie in a village. A strict and disciplined person, he tries to settle everything in the gendarmerie, but since he, like his subordinates, is delved into corruption and wickedness, he fails. In response to the helpless people’s rebellion, he declares martial law. However, the people promote his position through a fake order and declare termination on the martial law. Makvandi attempts on forcing the teacher to write an anthem and perform it with the students on the day of promotion, but the teacher and the students prepare themselves to sing another anthem; that is, the anthem of the revolution.
