Tehran, late 1970s a capital city on the brink of a revolution.
After the revolution, the physical and political landscape of Iran drastically changed. The streets were filled with crumbling buildings, sirens rang throughout the night, and smoke filled the skyline.
Naz Meknat was a young girl amidst this chaos, and it wouldn't take long to realize her life was destined to be just as chaotic as her burning city. As Naz grew up, she reflected the rebellious nature of the city she called home.
As an adolescent, Naz felt confined, wanting more out of life and out of the violent relationship she was in. Naz yearned for a chance at an extraordinary life but felt that it was far out of her reach. The struggles continued, and she had to find a way to keep her hope alive. A hope that turned into a goal, a goal to reach America.
