A former coachman turned taxi driver has never forgotten his sister in law, the love of his youth. At the time, they had to accept a marriage of reason, but they're now widows and everything becomes possible! But her own son strongly resents their desires... though he's in love with the coachman's daughter.
This film, punctuated with animation sequences, song and dance scenes, typical of 70s Iranian films, was one of that era's most popular.
