When the girl became pregnant she told her mother about it and went to the city with the superintendent. With lamentations she pleaded with Farrokh to save her reputation, but Farrokh drove the girl away. Monira was planning to kill herself, but Morad saved her. Morad, who lived with his sister Narges and his aunt Kolsum, told Monira he was interested in her. Monira went to Europe with her mother so she could have her child without the people in the village seeing it it.
