In early 20th century Iran, girls had little choice in deciding who they will marry.  But Anahita is able to convince her father to let her have a say in the matter.  Anahita will weave a riddle into her wedding carpet and will only marry the man who can solve the riddle.  This does not sit well with the khan, the man who was to become her husband.  Will he take revenge on Anahita and her father?
