Mina’s life is turned upside down when she learns that her husband Babak was innocent of the crime for which he was condemned and executed. The authorities express their regret for the mistake, offer her financial compensation and consider the matter closed. But it isn’t closed for Mina who, for the sake of herself and her daughter, begins a silent battle against a cynical system and demands a public apology. Just as her money is running out, a stranger named Reza knocks at her door saying he has come to repay a debt he owed to her husband. Mina is guarded at first, but increasingly lets Reza into her life, unaware of the secret that ties them together.
