Roya, a young single woman, lives in a shelter. She escapes the watchful eye of her guardians as often as she can in order to pay her way out of a heavy debt. Energetic and shrewd, she juggles loans and soon finds herself at the heart of a little scheme that could prove to be lucrative. But social and sexual inequality throws a wrench in the works for this fighter. One can never shake off one’s shackles so easily.
