Sheikh Taher is well-known for being a godly and respected imam among his people. One day, he agrees to pray for the soul of a woman he does not know. It doesn’t occur to him that his act of piety will cause him a lot of trouble. Hamid, his young Machiavellian and ambitious underling, takes this situation as an opportunity to precipitate the spoliation of Taher’s power.
