Nader is released after 5 years in jail, but soon is tempted to rob a jewelry shop along with an old acquaintance of him. He doesn't accept at first and wants to have a peaceful life with his wife, Soudabeh, but he agrees once he finds out that the shop belongs to Saeed Zebel, the same person who was responsible for his imprisonment . To assmble a team, he first goes to visit Ashkan, who agrees because he needs money in order to buy a house and get married. The next person is Ashkan's friend, Kourosh, who is an electrician . The shop is located under Tehran's Grand Hotel; they create a fire in the hotel,so they are able to go into the room above the shop and carry out their plan successfully. After they leave the hotel with the bag full of jewelry, Ashkan has an asthma attack and Nader goes to the pharmacy to get his medicine. However, this attack was his ruse to leave Nader, and escape with Kourosh and take all the jewelry. Ashkan then handcuffs Kourosh to the steering wheel and takes the bag. Nader and Kourosh go after Ashkan and go through a struggle upon finding him, during which the bag is passed around many times. Kourosh is thrown from a building while escaping and dies. Nader who was supposed to meet Soudabeh at the railroad station is killed just before he can get on the train by a killer who was hired by the same acquaintance who had proposed the robbery. Ashkan who believes to be the winner and can take the money, is also killed by the same man and eventually the money goes to the one who had originally made the proposition of robbery.
