When the strong-willed Bahar catches the attention of wealthy landowner Salar, she faces the prospect of a forced marriage to someone 40 years her senior. Unhappy and desperate for control over her own destiny, she decides to run away with her true love. However, this proves to be far from easy, and soon both Salar and Bahar’s abusive father Aghamoo are on her trail. Sweet, romantic, and at times tragic, this drama questions how far we are willing to go for love.
