"Mother married a photo of father," is the opening sentence of this intimate documentary. It turns out not to be a poetic freedom from maker Firouzeh Khosrovani. Her mother Tayi literally married a portrait of Hossein in Tehran, because as a radiology student in Switzerland he could not just like that. traveling back to his homeland.It proves to be indicative of the rift that has always existed in this marriage between the secular, progressive Hossein and the traditional, devout Muslim Tayi.In this way, this family history is at the same time an X-ray image showing the conflicts in Iranian society in the prelude to and aftermath of the 1979 Iranian Revolution are visible.
