Through an archaeological dig within an ancient city, the skeleton of a woman having been pregnant at the time of her death is discovered. Parnian portrays archaeologist Ehsan Yaghmane within his professional and family life. Suffering from a mortal hereditary disease, his wife and son as well as Yaghmane himself seem to find comfort in the beauty of the historical site, the landscape, and the kites flying into deep-orange sunsets.
