Leila, a young woman who has married the man she loves ardently, discovers that
she can never have a child of her own. Her husband Reza is not concerned much
about the issue, and believes their life will be beautiful enough even without
a child. But Reza's mother, an autocratic woman with four daughters and only one
son, makes Leila consent to Reza's taking a second wife.
Tortured by a sense of guilt due to her infertility, Leila is subjected to the humiliation of accepting the presence of another woman in her private world of love. The film depicts the encounter of a woman with a painful reality that is part of the recurring daily.
