The Hidden Half
Khosro is sent from the president's office on a fact finding mission to
Shiraz. His mission is to hear the complaints of a female political
prisoner, who is to be executed. Khosro's wife Fershteh, being of the same
generation as the woman in Shiraz decides to do something to help her. She
writes her own account of the revolution, without her husband's knowledge.
Khosro, in his hotel room in Shiraz, begins to read his wife's memoirs the
night before he is to see the prisoner.
