The forensic pathologist Dr Nariman, a principled and virtuous man, causes an accident involving a motorcyclist and his family, and injures their 8-year-old son. The next morning, he finds out that the same little boy has been brought in for an autopsy. Dr Nariman faces a dilemma now: is he responsible for the child’s death due to the accident or he died of food poisoning according to other doctor’s diagnostic?

“How many times so far our fear and inability to express the simple truth has triggered a big calamity in the life of another? I don’t know what I would do if I was in the shoes of the protagonist doctor, but I remember vividly much less troublesome moments when I succumbed to my fears and doubts. This film might be an elegy at the grave of a man I once dreamt to be.” (Vahid Jalilvand)
