Directed by: Vincent Paronnaud, Marjane Satrapi
Teheran, 1978. An eight-years-old girl, Marjane, dreams of her future, while she carefully pays attention to the coming revolution that will lead to the fall of the Sha's. Brought up in a modern and educated family, Marjane doesn't shy away from rebelling against constraints (veil, behaviour...) imposed by the new Islamic Republic. As the war against Iraq breaks out, Marjane becomes confronted to daily bombings and the loss of relatives. Her parents then decide to send her to Austria, where she will experience loneliness, exile and the difference.
