Filles d’Iran, un chemin secret dans la montagne

An old man is driving his van in the countryside to distribute books to young girls who are impatiently waiting for his arrival. He is but an illiterate man. They remind us what it means to live in a country where the position of women is one of inferior, and that we might have forgotten how education, intellectual curiosity and culture are the most efficient means to obtain equal rights in society.
