The bird flies in the sky, lands near a spring and is trapped. Ten men pull the nets and spin. In this rotation, the bird becomes a human. Man finds himself trapped in chains. Chains that end in the sky. On the way, he meets an old man with a long red beard and hair whose whole body is full of light. The old man shows the way. Reaches Qaf Mountain. Simorgh flies from its nest. Man follows him, opens his arms, his hands grow into two wings. Simorgh goes to a temple in the clouds. Man finds his chain and opens it. Man flies in the sky with his wings, sits by a pond and sinks slowly into the water. When it comes out of the water, it turns into a bird again. He flies.
