  Description     The film  
Former Iranian political prisoners talk about adjusting to life in a new country. One should not think that everything is okay just because the person has reached asylum in a safe place. It takes a long time to recover from what one has experienced, and it is hard to be open to others. Drawings by Masoud Raouf are included.
