Notes:
A picture of an unknown Tajik woman found in a Russian book on Tajikistan creates a catalyst for the filmmaker to reflect on issues of exile and cultural conflict. The film presents interviews with four women (including the director's mother) interwoven with personal observations and footage of Iranian and Muslim culture in the U.S., touching on many issues familiar to Muslim immigrants: war and revolution, loss of homeland and conflict with fundamentalist Islamic values.
