An engineer (Behzad Dourani) and his crew travel from Tehran in a jeep looking for the remote mountain village of Siah Dareh, in Iranian Kurdistan. There they meet Farzad, a young boy from the village, who becomes their guide.
The Engineer and his crew (who are never shown on-screen) are there to record a special ritual ceremony that will be determined by the fate of a certain Mrs. Malek. However, the locals believe that they are archeologists looking for buried treasure in an old cemetery.
The crew only plans on staying in Siah Dareh for a few days but their trip is extended as Mrs. Malek's health begins to improve. The crafty Engineer befriends Farzad in order to get reports on Mrs. Malek's condition.
