PersianDrama, History 104 min 1991

In the year 1906, during a period marked by minor despotism, Major Dadkhan, a government representative, receives a crucial assignment: to eliminate a group of notorious bandits that have plagued a particular region. In a strategic operation, he captures and successfully persuades Mashallah, an associate of Muhammad Khan, along with his group of riders, to collaborate with the authorities.

Major Dadkhan takes a significant risk by sending an innocent prisoner, unknowingly wronged by a corrupt central government in league with the bandits, as bait to the hideout of Jan Mohammad. Realizing the injustice, Major Dadkhan and his dedicated deputy spring into action to rescue the wrongfully imprisoned individual.

The wife of the innocent prisoner also embarks on a perilous journey to confront Jan Mohammad Khan. While at the hideout, she is taken captive by one of Khan’s associates, only to be heroically rescued by Major Dadkhan himself. This daring act leads to a decisive assault on Jan Mohammad Khan’s sanctuary.

However, in the ensuing confrontation, the deputy and some of the bandits tragically lose their lives. Despite these losses, Major Dadkhan’s unwavering determination and bravery ultimately prevail. The innocent prisoners are liberated and reunited with their families, marking the end of a tumultuous chapter in their lives.
