Morad has spent more than half of his life in prison. The last time when he was getting released, he made a promise to an old prisoner, named Heshmat. Morad assumed that he owes his life to Heshmat; thereby, he gave his word to find a woman, named Shohreh, and murders her for him. In return, Heshmat promised Morad to give him all of his fortune, including a car, a villa, and a house in Dubai. The woman’s resort is a particular park. After being released, Morad constantly goes there and waits. Meanwhile, he meet an old showman and his teenage son, named Nima. Morad turns into their colleague and companion and starts working there with the hope of fulfilling his mission at the moment of finding that woman. The showman dies; Nima and Morad continue his career. However, when the showman’s creditors are unable to get their money back, they take Nima with themselves. Throughout the conflict with the opponents, Morad finds out that Nima is a ‘girl’. So Morad tries to send her to his grandmother in the north of Iran; however, since Nima has fallen for Morad, she does not agree to leave him. One day, Morad finally meets Shohreh in the park. He cannot reach her there; therefore, he goes after her and catches her in her house. Shohreh narrates the truth differently; as a result, Morad finds out that in fact it was Heshmat who has caused the death of Shohreh’s only child and has put her in such a misery. Morad rejects the idea of killing her. As he is getting out of her house, Morad sees Nima, who is waiting there for him. Her father’s creditors are coming after her. While they are kidnapping Nima, Morad fights them and Nima kills one of them. Morad goes to the prison to meet Nima; he tells her that he would look forward to start a new life with her.
