Directed by Mohammad-Hossein Latifi, the series is the story of a man who is entangled in a spying game while he is trying to reunite with his beloved.
The man called Joobin has spent the last two years of his life in an Iranian prison for something he swears he has not done. When some mysterious figures break him out of prison, the only thing on his mind is to get himself to his beloved in Lebanon, Vafa, whom he left behind two years ago.
Mohsen Khavari, a detective at Tehran's police department, is hot on Joobin's trail and follows him to Beirut for bringing him back to justice. Joobin soon figures out it was his uncle along with his deceased father who helped him escape and that they were spies working for Israel. He's now caught up in a game of espionage as it becomes clear that the Israelis are only using Joobin as a tool to get to their real target which is assassinating Vafa's brother.
