Mohammad who is from a relatively supportive family and has a suitable financial situation in his family, gets involved with an emotional case and its following problems and matters,  facing a breakup at this stage , he is suffered with depression and severe educational decline . His family, in order to help him, acts mistakenly and it brings about bigger problems.
