Haji Jabbar is a rich and terribly stingy man. His daughter, Parvin, is in love with her cousin, but he is against their marriage because the boy is penniless and Haji wants to marry his daughter to a rich merchant. Haji has an assistant named Ahmad who continuously gives him grief and advises him to change his ways. One night, when Haji is badly ill, he sees Azrael (the angel of death) in his dream. Azrael is eager to take his life. Haji and Ahmad pass through limbo and reach hell. He is terrified when he sees Napoleon, Hitler, and Genghis Khan in hell. When he wakes from his dream, he decides to change his lifestyle and be kind to his family.
