Firouzeh Khosrovani’s deeply personal and beautifully textured account of her parents’ marriage gives a window upon Iran’s societal and political shifts across the last half a century. She is the product of Iran’s struggle between secularism and the Islamic ideology. Her parents’ love story takes us from the Shah era to the Islamic Revolution and the hardships during the Iran-Iraq War, up to the present day – all in their home in Tehran. In her childhood, Khosrovani was constantly forced to choose between her parents; each day, I endured imposition from one side and acceptance from the other. This is a love story of two different beliefs, documenting a family in the turmoil of Iran’s modern history.
