In the early 1920s in Iran two teenagers fall in love and marry. Sardar brings his young bride with him across the mountains to the suburbs of Tehran, where the couple settles down and builds a home. They will then watch as the Qajar dynasty falls and Reza Shah Pahlavi rises to power. Into this family of illiterate shepherds is born Bahram, a boy whose intellectual promise is apparent from a young age. Through his education, Bahram will become a follower of reformer Mohamed Mossadegh and will participate first hand in his country's political and social upheavals.
