Storyboard Text

  • I am a 17 year old girl who lives in Karaj, a city outside of Tehran, Iran. I live in a small home with my mother and father.
  • Hi Mom and Dad!
  • Hello my sweet Anahita
  • Every day, my mom and I walk through town with our hijabs on. My mom says that we wear them to protect ourselves from being harassed.
  • مقهى
  • Hello! Lovely day out, isn't it?
  • Mom, I'm sick of being forced to wear a hijab in public.
  • I have to make a change.
  • It shows our faithfulness to God and there isn't anything that we can do to change the law.
  • Later that day, I realized that my ideas of change could put me at risk of being killed. I had to find another way to escape the control of this country.
  • Eight were left dead after a bomb went off at a revolutionary demonstration today.
  • Mom, I don't think it is a good idea for me to live here anymore...
  • I no longer want to live in a country that people die in every day for expressing their opinions or for not wearing a hijab in public.
  • What? Why not?
  • Maybe it is for the best, she will be safer in France.
  • My baby wants to leave us!
  • You might be right, but she isn't even married! She's going out all on her own.
