Near a multi-colored sea, in the colorful village of Far-Khor, there lived a girl named Mamlakat. She was very young and very beautiful. More than anything else, Mamlakat loved theater. The real actors seemed to her the most interesting creatures in the world. One day, after the show, she happened to meet a man who introduced himself as an actor. Unfortunately, they met late at night, and nights are very dark in this area. Mamlakat could not see the face of this man who succeeded in seducing her. From that night on, Mamlakat’s son Habibullah began to prepare to his own arrival. It’s him who told about all that happened to his young mother before his birth.

At first Mamlakat, fearing the shame and anger of her father, wanted to get rid of her future son, but the doctor was killed by an accidental shot, and Habibullah remained alive. Then Mamlakat set out together with her father and brother to look for the Moon Dad. During the journey, Mamlakat found and lost her true love, lost her father and found the Mood Dad. She left the colorful village of Far-Khor in order to give birth to her son in a place where motherhood is probably never considered a sin.
