Marjane grows up in '70s Iran, which seems determined to crush her spirit. Her parents and feisty grandmother applaud her independence. However, they realise that Marjane's lust for life will eventually lead her into trouble with the Ayatollah Khomeini regime. So they send her away to Austria where the carefree western ways of her new friends fail to impress Marjane and she yearns for her homeland. Returning many years later into her family's welcoming arms, Marjane discovers that the Tehran of her childhood is very different to the capital city of the '90s.
