A remote station in a harsh geography. When the bridge is being renovated, Hassan, who is in charge of the old cable car of the river, finds the opportunity to decide which people can cross the river. Each of them has a different story and a different reason to cross the river by the old cable car.
Asghar the Angel, Hassan’s friend, is a pedlar on the train, and while waiting for the passenger train to come to the station, has to stay in Hassan’s house and help him drive the cable car and take the passengers across the river. Hassan’s house is in fact a compartment of a burnt and deserted wagon.
When the friendship between Hassan and Asghar the Angel deepens, they both reach a new understanding of the realities of life and their surroundings.
