The life story of three women in an old district of Tehran.
Fariba earns her and her family's living by managing a small cafe in the district. Her husband is jobless and is drowning in debauchery.
Saloomeh is the young and beautiful girl of the district that dreams of marrying a boy named Ebi. She desires a more comfortable life, but Ebi, a mechanic, cannot even pay for wedding costs or renting an apartment. Ebi is arrested and imprisoned in an attempt to make some dirty money.
Moluk is a middle-aged woman that has fallen in love with one of district's young men. Khosro likes her too, but not as his wife. Moluk, who is much older than Khosro, tries to remain young by dedicating some time to music and sport.
