Two young men (Amin and Akvan) one a barber, one a dyer, are both experts in their profession. They go to a remote town by ship. The town has limited industries and crafts and it is therefore a good market for work. They decide to start a new life.
Amin tries hard and succeeds in controlling soap production and distribution market. He meets a boy, Farbod, who accompanies him in the story. Amin marries Firoozeh (Farbod’s mother) and starts again the attar shop which is an inheritance from Farbod’s father.
