The villagers are preparing to attend the Ashura ceremony. Akbar is an adolescent who has grown up enough that his father asks him to do 'Qame-Zani' like his brother. Akbar is afraid, so he avoids it and shares his problem with the carpenter of the village. The carpenter suggests him that he fulfills a vow instead of it. The villagers are looking for a white horse for the Ashura ceremony. Meanwhile, a middle-aged man comes to the village with his disabled teenage daughter, Setareh. He intends to bring her to a medic who is known for healing his patients with medical herbs. He enters the village with a white horse. The people ask him to borrow the horse for the ceremony, but the man refuses. Akbar secretly brings Setareh to the place of the ceremony with a cart. On the other hand, the white horse roams to the place. The crowd gather around it and ask his owner about it again, but the man still opposes. His reason is that his intention (the healing of his daughter) has not been met yet. Akbar keeps avoiding Qame-Zani. In order to force him, his father threatens that he will be sacrificing Akbar's calf. Akbar who has recently been intimate with the family of the traveler man, realizes their problem. So he eventually decides to sacrifice his calf at the mourning ceremony, willing for Setareh's recovery. The Ashura ceremony is held, Akbar fulfills his vow and Setareh gets healed.
