A girl and her brother needing to travel to their hometown some five hours from Tehran get a ride with a taxi-driver who also happens to be a mullah. On the wa,y they pick up another woman with a baby. In the course of conversation we learn that the girl worked as a nurse for an old man who had attempted to have a relationship with her, an advance that she rebuffed. Oddly enough the mullah believes her while her brother, fully aware of the old mans wealth, wants her to turn back. Appearances can be deceiving.
