Description: Rezvan is a pious, middle-aged woman whose main purpose in life is to be a good Moslem; her life is dedicated to her religious rituals. Showing off the depth of her faith in God, she persuades her husband Hadji to marry one of the newly homeless women who has survived a devastating earthquake. She asks a social worker at a charity organization to find the most miserable woman she can find, and the social worker finds Maral. When Rezvan removes Maral's chador in front of her husband, the initially reluctant Hadji is mesmerized by her youth and beauty and falls head over heels. Overcome by jealousy, Rezvan, her Islamic duties forgotten, becomes obsessed with getting rid of Maral and restoring her previously happy life with Hadji. But can she?
