At the risk of imprisonment, the lovers finally receive permission from the Iranian government to marry. But the 1979 revolution threw the familys life into mortal danger. Disguised, they barely escape on the last Pan Am flight out of Teheran to America.

Everything about her life had changed: now named Farrah, and unfamiliar with mainstream American culture, the immigrant finds herself isolated in an American suburb with an infant. Fary Golshan feels utterly misplaced-and wants to return to her homeland, Iran. But Iran wouldnt allow her back-not even to visit her family as her father lay dying. Channeling her heartbreak, and with Iran holding US hostages and US President Jimmy Carter bartering for their release, she realizes she must seek changes not only for her own life, but for those the world over.

As the Islamic Republic of Iran continues to rip away at the Iranian peoples rights and freedoms, she takes the oath to become a US citizen and begins her transformation from a muted voice to a thunderous cry as an advocate for human rights. She becomes a political leader-and a respected international voice for the rights of women everywhere. An unforgettable journey of the sacrifices of love in the midst of international politics.
