Jahan is a reflective young man who is a clerk in a Tehran shopping mall clothing store. He lives with a group of friends in a large, rundown apartment in a building apparently slated for demolition. When Jahan spots 16-year-old Etti walking down the street it is love at first sight. Once Etti decides to trust in Jahan's kindness he swiftly and amusingly gets much more than he bargained for. It seems that Etti, a student, has been thrown out by her roommates because of her inability to pay her share of their expenses. Then there's the matter of her toothache. Etti comes on as a feisty girl who just wants to have fun, but she desperately and seriously wants to go abroad to seek a better life.
