Based on a true story, director Davood Khayyam uses events that resulted from the PIP implant scandal as inspiration for his cautionary tale. Plucked from an orphanage as a young girl, Mohey is not living the life she hoped for. Separated from her twin sister and abused by her benefactor, she has become ensnared in a life of underhand dealings and illegal trading, where her intellect and beauty are used as commodities. When Mohey is coerced into a temporary marriage to secure a deal, she reluctantly agrees, determined that her cut will finally buy her freedom. However, the underworld is not ready to let her go.
