Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

This is one of the few Iranian films that was begun under the rule of the former Shah and then completed after he was deposed, though its story seems unconnected to current events. The fantasy revolves around the ghost of a warrior from a long-lost era who roams the earth searching for his sword, the sword that will allow him the revenge he seeks. He eventually discovers that the miraculous weapon is in the possession of a beautiful widow, and when the two "meet," they fall in love. Since love is not always easy even if the two parties are in the same time zone, their unique situation causes some very dramatic moments.
