Raha, a young girl whose presence has put the group into danger, is pregnant, and in the absence of the baby's father, faces an uncertain future. Some people in the group believe that she should abort the baby but Raha resists to do so. Orang is a bisexual who tries to go London for treatment. Aila is a singer and music composer who believes that people in Iran do not take her seriously and she tries to emigrate to gain fame and popularity. Ghazal, Aila's fiancee, has joined this group because her family disagree with their marriage.
