The film is told as a journey
through Tehran but also as a very personal essay by Ragheh
Omaar as he digs deeper into this complex and fascinating
Omaar's journey takes him under
the skin of the city and he meets with local people who
share with him their personal stories and feelings about the
current state of affairs in Iran.
There are stories of taxi
drivers; wrestlers; business women; people working with drug
addicts and the country's leading pop star and his manager –
the Simon Cowell of Iran - who drove Omaar around Tehran in
Paul Sapin says: "Iran has
become a closed society to the West and it is a real
challenge to produce a genuine documentary in this region
due to problems with access for Western journalists, but
wherever we went, we were met with warmth and hospitality.
"Iran is not the austere,
humourless place we're led to believe and that was certainly
Rageh's experience." In English, comes on 2 DVDs.
