To pay for his wedding with his fiancée Maryam, Amir agrees to work for Afshar's gang. But Afshar's neglected wife falls in love with him. After he surprises them together, Afshar goes from total indifference to obsessive suspicion.
An assumed remake of Charles Vidor's Gilda, in which venomous Parvin Ghaffari has nothing to envy to Rita Hayworth's torrid charm.
