Synopsis

Seorang tentara mendapatkan izin dari dinas militer saat perang Irak-Iran untuk kembali ke desanya guna melangsungkan pernikahan. Saat kembali ke pasukan, dia menemukan teman-temannya kalah dan sebagian besar hilang atau gugur. Kemudian, dia melarikan diri dari medan perang dan kembali ke desanya. Mengetahui bahwa dirinya dikabarkan gugur oleh pasukan militer, dia memilih bersembunyi di ruang bawah tanah rumahnya agar tidak tertangkap.

A soldier gets permission from the military services during the Iraqi-Iranian war, and returns back to his village for his wedding. When he returns to the army, he finds his fellows defeated, most of them are lost or dead. He then escapes from the battlefield and returns back to the village. When he discovers that the army has announced him as a deceased soldier, he hides himself in the basement of his house to avoid getting arrested.
