The director decides to make a documentary about Farrah, the wife of Iran’s shah. Nahid Persson Sarvestani who spent her childhood in poverty has watched her wedding like a fairy tale. Queen Farrah meets her like another refugee from her country and the director gets into the queen’s world for one and a half years, with a plan to confront the ideology of the shah. When the fact that Nahid Persson Sarvestani had previously opposed to the shah is revealed, the queen ceases the shooting but they maintain a close friendship, trying to understand each other’s experiences.
The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.
