Mina's (Maryam Moqadam) life is turned upside down when she learns that her husband Babak was innocent of the crime for which he was executed. The authorities apologize for the mistake and offer financial compensation. So Mina begins a silent battle against a cynical system for her own good and that of her daughter. Just as she runs out of her money, a stranger named Reza (Alireza Sani Far) knocks on her door and tells her that she has come to pay off a debt she owed to Babak. Mina is relieved, but she increasingly lets Reza into her life, unaware of the secret that binds them.
