A People in the Shadows

Almost thirty years after the revolution, and twenty since the end of the long Iran-Iraq war, a voyage into the heart of Tehran, a megalopolis of fourteen million people. The city is still recovering from its past, as talk of sanctions and a possible American attack resonate. An intimate look at the way people live in this immense city today, caught up in its paradoxes and contradictions.
