In 1856, Moore, the English minister in Persia, enters the capital with the mission of secession of Herat from Persia. This is at the time when the Nassir ed-Din Shah's court is busy with women more than anything else! When Galin, the favourite wife of the Shah, Parvin Khanoom, her sister, and Amineh (the conspirator and deceitful woman of the court) find out about Hashim Khan, a servant of the court, taking refuge in the British embassy because of his low wage, try to provoke the Shah. Meanwhile, the chancellor, Mirza Agha-Khan, who was once in love with Parvin Khanoom, takes advantage of the situation and tries to provoke the Shah against Hashim. Later on, Parvin Khanoom joins his husband at the British embassy; but after a while informs her sister, Galin, with a letter that she doesn't feel safe at the embassy. Galin, who looks a lot like her sister, enters the embassy and helps her sister to get away from there, and she gets out of there in a short while as well. Shah finds out about this and orders the hangman to kill his wife, but before this, Amineh confesses that it was all coming from Mirza Hashim Khan. And so Mirza Hashim Khan is imprisoned and the new year celebrations take place as expected with the fireworks in the palace.
