Mahi is a widow mourning the death of her only son. One day she bumps into Behrooz, her teenage sweetheart, who had left Iran following the scandal of his relationship with her. Despite their family’s’ objections, the previous relationship begins to re-assert itself. Mahi, however, finds out that Behrooz is emotionally involved with a young woman, Sara, who in turn learns of her fiancé’s previous love. Sara is now in two minds about  marrying Behrooz and emigrating to Canada. On the horns of these emotional entanglements the three characters have to make decisions not only about their emotions, but also their future lives.
