Her father’s death is ruled a suicide, but Negar (Negar Javaherian) does not agree with the decision. Handsome Peyman, who worked for her father, tries to help her reach peace of mind.
But when Negar investigates on her own, she begins to have visions of what really happened to her father. Father and daughter have discussions and relive family moments, and he provides her with clues in real time that steer her towards the truth.
Negar discovers her father was in business with a ruthless criminal, and vows revenge, but her new insights cause her to cast suspicion on everyone around her. This absorbing drama is a mystery-thriller with a touch of the supernatural.
