Unveiled was a narrative composed of story fragments drawn from Iran’s revolutionary political movements of 1936, 1979 and 2009. Our protagonists were two women “caught up in the moment” of these societal upheavals. The focus was on the aftermath for those whom the 1979 revolution did not bring about the societal and political changes they desired, and how the repetition of a second attempted revolution thirty years after the first was a disappointing echo of the same experience.
