State of the World Film Society Presents:
A poignant coming-of-age story of an outspoken Iranian girl that begins
during the Islamic Revolution.
As a ten-year old girl, the author is forced to wear a veil to school by
those that called for a cultural revolution in Iran. There are many
protests both for and against this cultural revolution. Her French
non-religious school is abolished and boys and girls are separated for
education. Her mother protests against the changes and her picture appears
in newspapers across Europe. She is afraid after that. The author believes
that one day she will be the last prophet. She has conversations with God
in which she imagines that there will be cultural and social equality and
that old people will not suffer from pain. When she announces her plan, her
classmates and teacher ridicule her but she retains the hope that she will
one day be the symbol for justice, love, and the wrath of God.
