At the beginning of World War I, Iran declares neutrality in order to prevent further destruction to their country. Despite this, both the Allied and Central forces continue to use it for their own political ends. The current ruler is Ahmad Shah of the Qajar dynasty, a man who considers himself a child in the face of seasoned politicians, who all assist him with delicate matters of state. His real test comes when he embarks on a relationship with the Countess Degoti of Austria, a relationship which the British and Russian representatives see as a threat to their national security. Accusing the Countess of being a spy, the representatives start putting pressure on the Shah to declare where his loyalties lie, and force him for once to play the experts at their own game. Historical drama starring legendary actor Ali Nassirian.
