Siamak, Esi and Taghi all have but two things in common: their dwelling and profession. Taghi is a drug addict and his friend Siamak tries to get Taghi off drugs and encourages him to adopt a healthy, 0ff-drug life. What changes Siamak's life dramatically is a sick and wretched girl called Gandom. Siamak falls in love with her and starts pushing drugs to junkies as a means to pay for Gandom's medical expenses. Siamak, through selling drugs, undergoes various atrocious and belittling experiences and stoops so low that he sees the worst part of life.
