  Description     The film  
An Islamic state was established in Iran after the Revolution of 1979. Political oppression markedly increased thereafter, and many who disagreed with the government were arrested. Three former Iranian political prisoners, Shokufeh, Shirin, and Reza Ghaffari talk about their personal escapes from Iran.
