Her fascination with rug making is a pastime they indulge only for the interim, but her fathers untimely death prompts the girl to travel with her mother to the city of Isfahan, where the two live as servants in the opulent home of an uncle—a wealthy rug maker to the Shah. The only marriage proposal now in the offing is a three-month renewable contract with the son of a horse trader.

Teetering on poverty and shame, the girl weaves fantasies for her temporary husbands pleasure and exchanges tales with her beleaguered mother until, having mastered the art of making and selling carpets under her uncles tutelage, she undertakes to free her mother and herself.
