The film was produced by Studio Moulin Rouge. Plot summary: The story takes place in 1945-1946 during the Iran-Azerbaijan crisis. Azar [Pouri Baneai] loved her young boss Behruz [Behruz Vossoughi] but she was a blind maid working for an aristocratic family and never revealed her feelings. She gave up hope when Behruz returned from Europe with his European fiancee. She told herself a blind girl has no right to fall in love. Her consolation was that Tehran is a city of poetry that always rises above depression. She became a nurse and gave her heart to it. One day she saw Behruz while caring for soldiers on the front lines. He had been injured in the fighting and did not recognize her. By this time she had recovered her sight with treatment at Pahlavi University's Saadi Hospital, changed her name to Mitra and taken on a new personality. Behruz's European fiancee had left Iran and he was free to form a relationship with Mitra.
