Davoud Rashidi, known as “the doctor,” arrives in a village and moves into a summer house. Suspicion grows among the villagers as they sense something amiss. The doctor, seeking an escape from the country, reflects on his troubled past within the confines of the house. In his earlier life, he had been involved with a political party opposing the royal regime, but he was captured, tortured, and compelled to repent, aligning with the security organization. He ordered the execution of political opponents and abandoned his wife, Shahla Mirbakhtiar.
