The sun shines on all equally01  

Nager and Janet are close friends. Reza, Negar's husband and Janet's former lover, is a chemically-injured war victim, with his recovery a total disappointment to his doctors. Deceiving the hospital manager, a friend of Negar's influential father, they succeed in getting Reza out of the hospital and taking him to a shrine in another city, hoping for a miracle. But, in driving the long, beautiful roadway, they find miracles all around, leading them at the end to a greater miracle for the Muslim couple and unexpected enlightenment for Janet, a Christian.
